CGiii Comment

Nam and Viet love each other. Both are miners, working 1,000 meters below ground, where danger awaits and darkness prevails. In the brief moments of respite, in the exhaustion of male bodies, they kiss. The town they in live makes a living from coal. Nam’s mother collects coal waste from the mines to make briquettes. Coal earns them a living, while polluting the land and the sea. Nam, like other young people, has decided to leave the country. Many families get out of poverty thanks to the money they receive from relatives working abroad, most of them illegal immigrants. Nam meets an agent who can smuggle people abroad in containers. Nam’s father, a soldier who died in the war, visits his mother's dreams to tell her where he died. One morning, in a coastal cave, Nam bleeds while Viet enters him. Looking at the blood Nam tells Viet: “I saw my father, a faceless man, when I was about to ejaculate.” Nam, his mother and Viêt go south to the old battlefield to find the remains of his father.
