In this intergenerational exploration of Vietnamese American diasporic identities, cultural memories, and collective trauma, director Minh Duc Nguyen crafts a twisted tale concerning Vu (Long Nguyen), a lonely recluse, and his employment of a local, young actress, Mai (Thien Nguyen) to help him relive the experience of his beloved, dead wife in this Hitchcockian thriller.
Both lead actors won acting awards at this past edition of Viet Film Fest, where the film had its world premiere.
