Tet, the Lunar New Year, is a very important time for family reunions. However, not everyone is lucky enough to be with their family to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new.
Through the story of a young driver (played by singer Jun Pham) who faces several problems on his trip to return home right before Tet as well as about a group of passengers on a bus from Sai Gon to Ca Mau heading home, the comedy is about serious issues like love and life.
In addition to the story of the road trip, the film portrays different elements of life and features beautiful landscape of the southwestern region.
The screening will take place from 7.30pm to 9pm at The Centre for Development of Movie Talent – TPD, 51 Tran Hung Dao Street. The 80-minute movie will be presented in Vietnamese language with English subtitles.
Ticket: VND150,000. RSVP to Van at firstname.lastname@example.org. Max 40 people. Please arrive by 7.15pm latest to collect and pay for ticket at TPD. VNS
