In this atmospheric tale of life and love in modern-day Hanoi, young bride Duyen quickly learns that her husband is not only sexually naïve, but also overly occupied with his job and doting mother. As her marriage goes unconsummated and her emotional isolation grows, the frustrated newlywed reaches out to her closest girlfriend—who harbors her own secret desires and pushes Duyen into the arms of a dangerous suitor. The subsequent sexual awakening and infidelity puts her in a precarious love triangle that challenges her own notions about conventional relationships and family. Saturated with erotic tension, director Bui Thac Chuyen's absorbing second feature traces the emotional and psychological landscapes of lust and desire. ADRIFT (CHOI VOI) is presented in Vietnamese with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
