    • Synopsis
    • Pao's Story depicts the lives of remote ethnic Mong villagers and a young girl named Pao- played by renowned actress Hai Yen, who was featured in the international hit The Quiet American, directed by Australian Philip Noyce. Pao has two mothers – a real mother and a stepmother. Her real mother leaves Pao and her brother when they are young babies to be raised by their stepmother.
      But after a family incident, Pao leaves home to track down her real mother. Her journey leads us on a journey of discovery where we see the secrets of love and the strength of relationships between people in the countryside.
      The film contains some breath-taking primitive scenes in the mountainous provinces of Vietnam. We can see the complicated moods of Pao in her quest, demonstrated simply and slowly without much use of dialogue...
