As a young filmmaker, Franco goes to Vietnam looking for inspiration for his first feature film and finds an unexpected subject – his mom. Authentic and irreverent, Franco Nguyen delves into the personal, sharing stories about visiting Vietnam for the first and being re-introduced to the mother he thought he knew. A hilarious and heartfelt story about family, history and love.
