The Rivers

Mai Hua, a Frenchwoman of Vietnamese origin, is a divorced mother of two children. In 2013, with her mother, she takes her dying grandmother back to France. When her grandmother is miraculously reborn, an unresolved past resurfaces: Mai becomes the heir to a complex and painful family memory that she does not want to pass on to her daughter. Through this lineage of women and their search for the truth, the director delves into a family archeology that is both intimate and universal.
