Tagline: From the director of the Academy Award Nominated film "The Scent of Green Papaya" comes a shocking new vision of beauty, passion and power.

Plot: A haunting tale set in a turbulent, decaying Ho Chi Minh City, chronicling the exploits of a teenage "cyclo" (rickshaw driver) and his vulnerable sister. In order to support his family, the cyclo immerses himself in a violent gang, and begins committing petty crimes. After entering this seedy underworld the young man discovers that his sister already belongs to it, selling her body to sexual deviants. As a result, each sibling's innocence is shattered, representing the moral and physical collapse of the city they reside in.
