A motorcycle accident in Saigon leads Thien to travel back to his hometown in the countryside to look for his nephew’s father. The journey is entwined with spiritual reflections and enriched by encounters with different people, including an ex-girlfriend. The slow-moving scenes are visually mesmerizing, and the directorial debut has been awarded at Cannes and elsewhere for its impressively strong artistic voice.
