In 2030, water levels have risen to the point that southern Vietnam is beginning to drown. To survive, people live on houseboats and rely solely on fishing. As land vanishes, huge multinational conglomerates compete to build floating farms along the coastlines equipped with desalination and solar power plants to produce much needed vegetables that have become highly priced commodities.
A young woman, Sao, tries to cope with the everyday challenges of her environment in the aftermath of her husband’s murder. A re-encounter with a former lover, Giang, who works for one of the corrupt conglomerates and their floating farms, leads her to suspect his role in her husband’s death.
