A Cloak of Good Fortune traces one Cambodian child's coming of age from the idyllic, peaceful years of childhood in rural Cambodia through his family's forced exile. by the Khmer Rouge.

Sieu. Sean Do was born in 1963 and grew up in Kampong Speu, a rural town about fifty kilometers outside Phnom Penh. The midwife declared Sieu Sean a rare family blessing because he was born inside the amniotic sac, and. in Khmer folklore, the sac is believed to be a "cloak of good

fortune" that brings good luck. No one knew then how much luck the family would ultimately need.
