Vietnam, 1500s. A family of three women (diligent Daughter, naive Sister, and intimidating Mother) is on the run from a war that is ravaging their home. After days on the sea, they find shelter on a secluded island. Daughter is alienated by Mother who blatantly favors Sister. One day, she makes friends with a mysterious figure claiming to be Buddha and bestows her with gifts for her woes. Day by day, the women are haunted by supernatural events and visions from the past as supplies dwindle. Are their spiraling circumstances an accumulation of repressed emotions and unspoken secrets, or are they under the whims of a mischievous ancient entity who is inflicting chaos into their lives? A gothic reimagining of the Vietnamese fairy tale Tấm and Cám, Vietnam’s CINDERELLA story.
