Kristina Sunshine Jung was born on 1st August 1978 to the drug addict parents. Kristina’s father, George Jung, was an infamous drug dealer who was responsible for most of the supply of heroin to the US. Convicted for his crime, Kristina’s father faced prison on numerous occasions. The childhood of Kristina Sunshine Jung was made shabby and uncomfortable due to these uneasy circumstances.
To make matters worse, Kristina’s mother Mirtha Jung also used drugs to console her troubled soul. She got easy access to drugs courtesy her husband, George Jung. Just like her husband, she was prisoned by the court in the case of drug possession.
Trouble didn’t end here. The parents had consistent feuds, and most of them resulted in long phases of turmoil. When Kristina was three, her parents eventually decided that they can live no more with each other. This prompted divorce, and Kristina was given in the custody of her mother.
Such were the circumstances in which Kristina Sunshine Jung lived and developed her personality. But to Kristina’s good fortune, her maternal grandparents played a role to finance her growth. Fredrick Jung and Ermine Jung provided Kristina with clothes, money, and school so that she could live a comfortable life despite the fact that her parents were in jail. But this didn’t last for long. Unfortunately, Kristina’s grandfather died soon. At that time, Kristina’s aunt came to her rescue and adopted her until the age of 18.
Kristina Appeared in ‘Bow’
Kristina even appeared in a movie in the early ’90s named ‘Bow’. The movie was about her father life as a drug addict who had conflicting thoughts about his family and business. The movie actually depicts how George Jung life was divided between her love for family and business.
Bow also shows that George Jung wants her daughter to meet him but Kristina is unwilling to do so. The movie is an emotional outcry of love by George Jung about his daughter. However, the movie has a sad end as Kristina Sunshine Jung finally decides to not meet him.
So the movie ‘Bow’ George Jung is about the unwillingness of a daughter to have any relationship with her criminal father. Is the movie depiction of their real-life relationship?
