Three years after making her first film, the director returned to the alleyway in the working class neighbourhood of Ho Chi Minh City.
Here, in this narrow street, the inhabitants live on the margin of the fast economic development of this southern megalopolis. The problem here every day for the inhabitants is money. They survive thanks to a parallel economy: they are street sellers, small-time traffickers, money-lenders, they get loans from poor peoples’ banks… A different face of the Vietnamese economy.
