„O emoţionantă poveste de dragoste între un băiat gay de la ţară care s-a mutat recent la oraş şi un…”

Khoi, a naive twenty-year-old, travels to Ho Chi Minh City from the countryside to begin a new life. It’s his first time in the big city and he’s looking for a place to live. He befriends Dong, a handsome extrovert who offers to share his apartment. When Khoi goes to check the place out, he meets Lam, who also appears to be living there. Khoi decides to stay, but while he showers, Dong and Lam – who turn out to be boyfriends – run off with all his cash and belongings. It’s not long before Lam is himself abandoned by Dong, and winds up back on the street as a prostitute. Meanwhile the penniless and disillusioned Khoi takes on menial jobs to survive. Lam and Khoi are eventually reunited, and despite Lam’s past actions, the two become closer and closer – even though Khoi becomes more and more troubled by Lam’s dangerous source of income. At the same time, Cuoi, a mentally handicapped man abandoned by his family, attempts to befriend a female prostitute. Her pimps do not take kindly to his hanging around and scaring away customers, but she takes pity on him and ultimately becomes his protector.


” I’ve heard a lot of hype about this movie being the first homosexual movie and usually when people hype things it turn out bad. However, I loved this movie; it lived up to my expectations and beyond. The storyline was touching, I was engaged and I felt what the people on screen were feeling. It left me speechless and I’m so touched by it! „

” For me, this is not the first homosexual movie in Vietnam, the first one I have seen was „Trai Nhay” which was more of a comedy and a pretty darn good one too. However, it does take a lot of gut to come out with a heartfelt homosexual movie in such a narrow minded society. „
