Hybrid In a house in the South of Vietnam, paths cross that separated 40 years ago and branched out as far as Germany. Of three Vietnamese brothers, one went to West Germany as a diplomatin the 1970s, where he then stayed with his family. Another brother was lost in the war. The third is the only man living in this house with the women of the Le family. Then his nephew and niece arrive from Germany to sort some things out, both material and metaphysical.  Themeeting of the relatives and their conversations make certain family constellations clear that are characterized by migrational experience and the ghosts of the past.
