Ash Mayfair’s exquisite-looking and critically acclaimed feature is set in her native Vietnam in the 19th century. A winner of the Spike Lee Production Fund and based on true events, it tells the story of May, a 14-year-old girl who becomes the third wife to a wealthy landowner. It’s the story of a child forced to grow into a woman and the consequences of her journey and self-discovery.

Beautifully proportioned and shimmeringly beautiful, as perfectly formed as a Faberge egg.
