Dive into Vietnamese legends and Lift the curse!
Until last week, Mr Pham Quang Duc was a discreet man living in Hoi An city center. Respected by his neighbors, he used to live a quiet life in his small house. Being the only child from a family of merchants, M. Pham sold fabrics in a small shop until he decided to retire in 2009.
His only living family member is a young woman currently studying in Saigon. Although she rarely came to visit him, her visits were intense moments of happiness for him.
Recently Mr Pham’s mood seemed to change and he was never seen in the city anymore, except for mysterious nocturnal excursions during which witnesses swear they saw him wandering like a lost soul.
Back to Hoi An for the funeral of her grandfather, Pham Thi May discovers in the little house a curious letter where her grandfather sheds light on the reasons for his madness ...
