Orbiting between frames of monochrome and colour, Truong Minh Quý’s fictional biography reconstructs the memories of a home he left behind and can never return to. His complex relationship with the past and present emerges through narrations of childhood memories and observations of his parents’ relationship. These recollections thread between the present day and the imaginary year of 2048 when Vietnam becomes submerged under relentless rain.

The directorial feature debut of Vietnamese director Truong Minh Quy premiered at the 2016 Busan International Film Festival and was screened at the Taipei Film Festival.
