Children Of The Mist | Ha Le Diem | VNM | 90’

DI is a 13-year-old girl living in a village lost in the mist of North Vietnamese mountains. She is fortunate as she is part of the first generation of kids whom have the opportunity to have access to education, but she must convince her parents, that studying is not a waste of time and money. DI belongs to the Hmong ethnic minority, where traditionally women get married very young. On the Lunar New Year's Eve, when DI's parents come back home after celebrating, the house is silent and empty: DI has disappeared. What happened to DI?
