Saigon of the 1980s never looked more glorious than it does as the backdrop for this mesmerizing musical melodrama, the award-winning feature debut by director Leon Le.

When ruthless debt-collector Dung (Lien Binh Phat) demands an overdue payment from a Cai Luong folk opera company, male star Linh Phung (popular V-pop singer Isaac) is immediately drawn to him. As their paths continue to cross, initial misconceptions melt away, and Thunderbolt reveals that he too was raised in the Cai Luong tradition. The gangster and the singer gradually discover they are kindred spirits in this amber-hued, stunningly lit and photographed, beautifully performed story of soul-wracking regret and aching love.

With his first feature film, director Leon Le delivers a rich drama: a smoldering relationship between two apparent opposites—equally uncompromising—set against the backdrop of a gorgeous, fading art form.
