Synopsis: MONSOON is a rich and poignant reflection on the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present. Kit (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians) returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was six years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.
Monsoon is the 2nd feature film of Cambodian-British director Hong Khaou (his 2014 debut, Lilting, starred Cheng Pei Pei and Ben Whishaw). It currently has 11 reviews and a 91% Rotten Tomatoes rating.
