We are young students who all went to the same secondary school in the far-off Mekong delta. Today, we live together in a small flat in the city of Ho Chi Minh where we are studying management and marketing. Things were difficult at the beginning and we had little contact with our neighbours until the day I decided to go out and discovered a world quite close to us that I knew nothing about, with its own rules and difficulties.
