After a tragic traffic accident, Thien travels to the countryside with his orphaned nephew in a vivid odyssey that was awarded as the best debut film at Cannes.

Thien's sister-in-law dies in the motorcycle accident while her five-year-old son Dao survives. The reticent Thien takes care of the child and brings his sister-in-law's remains to her hometown. There, he also stays for a few days to pray for her soul with her relatives. But he also meets his former girlfriend Taho, who has dedicated her life to taking care of orphaned children in a monastery school. Thien himself is an agnostic, but the meeting with Taho is stirring, and he begins a searching journey, where he also tries to find Dao's missing father. It is a stirring cinematic journey, which has made Thien An Pham, a debutant Caméra d'Or winner, already compared with the great masters.
