FILM PROJECT IN DEVELOPMENT
In contemporary Vietnam, Thao is an imaginative teacher married into a traditional family. She has an unfulfilled interest in sketching. Her husband Minh, a busy financial investor, and his parents are waiting for her to give birth to a son to continue the family lineage, but Thao has a sudden miscarriage. Depressed by her family’s apathy and coldness, Thao flees from the city to a village surrounded by pristine wilderness and primal caves. While seeking inspiration for her sketches, she finds herself strongly attracted to Van – a mysterious, lonely cave-trekker with an inscrutable charm. Thao convinces Van to accompany her in the exploration of a cave, not knowing this will lead to a once-in-a-lifetime experience: discovering a hidden cave and unleashing their inner desires. Minh suddenly shows up, looking for Thao. Torn between responsibility and desire, Thao decides to escape from both and find her own life.
