To escape from the difficulties of life in the countryside, Hung and Thuy decide to sell ceramic ware. They mortgage their family home to buy a boat which is used to transport the goods. They travel down the Red River to reach Hanoi, the capital, and sell their pots as best they can. Their new direction is not so easy.
