Kim Phuc tells a story like no other. She is the poster child of the Vietnam War, and an icon of the cry for peace. She is the unforgettable girl behind the photo – at age nine she was photographed, running naked up a road with her skin on fire. She was fleeing the horrors of the Vietnam War and, luckily, she escaped her death from napalm to tell her story.
Kim recounts her story to those around the world. And each time, she paints an unforgettable image of her life and how it was altered by the click of a camera. Nick Ut’s photograph saved her because of the recognition she received.
