    • Synopsis
    • 10 year old Vy, North Vietnamese girl, is very close with her grandmother, whom she spends her afternoons with selling street food. She knows very little about her mother, who died a long time ago, and has no relationship with her father, who transports people and goods from the countryside to Hanoi’s open market in his passenger truck. But when Vy’s grandmother suddenly falls sick and needs hospitalization, Trung (her father), apparently decides to take his daughter as a helper, however his real plan is to drop her on the way, to be raised by distant relatives.
      Set against the colorless landscapes of the harsh Vietnamese winter, The Paths of My Father is the story of Vy venturing out for the first time on a journey with this stranger who is supposed to be her father. At the same time, little Vy is on her own personal quest to discover more about her mysterious family background. Throughout the journey they are forced to come to terms with the family wounds.
