My Linh Le has been lying to her parents about who she is for decades. When she’s with them, she gives them the daughter they want, and she keeps the truth about who she is to herself. 

But then one night, My Linh has a strange dream and wakes up wondering, at 31 years old, is it finally time to own up to all the lies she's been living since high school?

My-Linh Le packs for a trip to Europe. She says her whole life is about being two people at the same time. (April Dembosky/KQED)
