The Buffalo Boy
In 1940s southern Vietnam, the rainy season threatens to consume life as much as sustain it. With his family's survival heavily dependent on a pair of buffalo, young Kim (Le The Lu) agrees to take the animals inland from the water-logged coast in search of food. On his journey, he witnesses firsthand the brutality of man and sees how taxes by the occupying French further harm the poor. When Kim encounters a herder (Vo Hoang Nhan) in a position to help, he must decide whether he can trust him.
