The documentary, Be Good, Smile Pretty, takes an emotional look at the personal story of one child who was left fatherless by the Vietnam War. Tracy Droz Tragos' lets us in on her journey to discover who her father, U.S. Naval Soldier Don Droz really was, before he was killed leaving her behind as an infant.
