Thousand Fathers
In a remote village at the edge of the world, a Vietnamese family tries to survive. As boat refugees, they were fished out of the water by a northern freighter and placed in an unknown ice-cold country. If the father leaves unannounced one day, the Chinese mafia is  on the skin of the remaining family. The eleven-year-old daughter gets stifled between her mother's total despair and the madness of the environment of strangers. All she has in a world of whores, toothpaste merchants and gambling addicts is her rich imagination.
