Directed by the brother and sister directing team of Doan Thanh Nghia and Doan Minh Phuong, this elegant art film is Vietnam’s answer to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic The Scarlet Letter. In their debut feature film, which has been called Vietnam’s first feminist film, a picturesque mythic fable is quietly and meticulously brought to life.  In pre-colonial Vietnam, a young man goes on a cross country quest to find the true identity of his mother, retracing her steps years ago.
