Uncle & Son
As his parents left a long time ago, the boy must then live with his uncle, who is a tailor. Their house in a peaceful village in the Southern region is simple yet cosy. However, the innocent boy can’t ignore the heartless gossips about his uncle’s life from practically everyone else. At the same time, considering his nephew a kid, the uncle can’t give him a reasonable explanation or excuse for his questions either. The boy blames himself and decides to find a solution that he believes will bring his uncle a better life. Yet his decision only leads them to even more tragic circumstances. The film is full of emotions, typical of the folklore of Southern Vietnam. It also triggers much thinking about social prejudice and lack of empathy for human beings who are different.
