Soon after her wedding, newlywed Duyen’s excitement begins to fade as she realizes her husband is not only sexually naïve, but overly occupied by his job and doting mother. As her marriage goes unconsummated, she reaches out to her closest girlfriend, Cam, who secretly desires her, but pushes her into the arms of a dangerous and provocative suitor. The resulting sexual awakening and infidelity puts Duyen in a precarious love triangle, challenging her notions of conventional relationships and also the stability of her new family. Director Bui Thac Chuyen’s sensuous and absorbing second feature traces the emotional and psychological landscapes of lust and desire.
