    • Synopsis
    • The film portrays the life of a family separated from the mainstream of modern society, yet contraining within its microcosm the complex layers and dramas of human relationships: conjugal life, sexual trauma, and the faillures and bonds of fatherhood, brother and sisterhood. It's about a unique social stratum in a remote place in Vietnam with unspoken traditions, customs and lifestyles. But most of all, it's the universal story of a family that like all other families has to find strength and diretion in each other to navigate their way through the choices and consequences that make up human existence. Based on Nguyen Thi Ngoc Tu's best selling short story, Floating lives will draw audience into the colourful daily life of unsophisticated peasants scratching out a living in the beautiful but unforgiving landscape of the immense, mysterious and prescient Mekong Delta, characters whose strength, flaws and beauty, as they search for the sustenance of life and love, tear at one's heart
