Adapted from two short stories ‘Tro tan ruc ro” and “Cui muc troi ve” by writer Nguyen Ngoc Tu, the film was honoured for the poetic beauty depicted in its shimmering and enchanting frames.
The 116-minute film tells the longing love story of three women for the men they choose to spend their whole lives with.
