Summary
From Tran Anh Hung, the internationally acclaimed director of "The Scent of Green Papaya" and "Cyclo" comes the richly sensual, deeply moving tale of tradition , love and deception in the magical city of Hanoi, Vietnam. Lien, Suong and Khan are three sister who, together with a brother, two husbands and a child, are living and loving in the supportive clan they've forged since the death of their parents. But there are deep secrets that are being kept that threaten to disrupt the harmony and balance of their daily existence, making life much more tenuous and complicated than it seems on the surface. "As if scented with lemongrass and ginger, Tracy Anh Hang's 'The Vertical Ray of the Sun' lingers on the palate with a tenaciousness that belies its delicacy." - John Anderson, NEWSDAY
