Kieu, a young Vietnamese actress, begins a love affair with her father’s employee. But as his company’s debts mount, a shadow is cast over Kieu’s future. In a desperate attempt to save the family business from bankruptcy a trade is proposed - the debt will be forgiven in return for the father’s most valuable asset – his daughter. She must now choose between her family and her love – yet she still does not know the true nature of the family business. Based on Nguyen Du’s poem, ‘The Story of Kieu’ – written as an allegory for the oft-abused country of Vietnam.
