In nineteenth-century rural Vietnam, fourteen-year-old May becomes the third wife of wealthy landowner Hung. Soon, she learns that she can only gain status by asserting herself as a woman who can give birth to a male child. May's hope to change her status turns into a real and tantalizing possibility when she gets pregnant. Faced with forbidden love and its devastating consequences, May finally comes to an understanding of the brutal truth: the options available to her are few and far between.

A beautifully filmed movie of 19th century traditional Vietnamese life & the futility of their lives. Sad & pitiful during it's time. An ADULT. movie with a child as a wife.

This story was used to happen at the Vietnamese countryside where a man could get married to many women. And certainly the women were usually unhappy with this marriage. If they could not bear a son, they were treated like helpers.

A sad, lyrical movie with beautiful acting in a breathtaking scenery.

Even watching this using sub-titles, I really had no idea what the point of this movie was. Not recommended
