Portrait film of one of my best friends. Lemd is a cool guy who has proved to me times and times again that there is a lot more to a friendship than just normal guys' bullshit. My time in Finland would have been very different without the guy. As he is leaving Helsinki to go back to Hanoi in 2 weeks, we finally got down to make this film. It has been more than 6 years since the time he came, and more than 4 years we have been hanging out. There are so many things happened. Even now. The film is a portrait, as I use my camera to draw him. As a parting gift to Lemd, my friend! Until next time!
In this film, I want to depict him as a calm person who is ready to deal with anything life throws at him. Also lying in there bits of things that people in mid-20 have to face everyday: travel, movement, loneliness, doubt, personal identity in time of crisis. The most important thing of all, is that as a young man, he has to keep walking no matter what. Just take it all with a pint of salt.
