Synopsis: Kit (CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ Henry Golding) can’t remember much of his native Vietnam. When he returns to the Land of the Golden Star for the first time in over thirty years, he takes in his surroundings as any Western tourist would: the environment as exotic as the language incomprehensible, and a budding romance with an ex-pat. The aim of Kit’s travels is to find a place to scatter his parents’ ashes becomes part of a journey back to his roots and to the discovery of his identity. A subtle film about rootlessness, the process of recollection, and finding new contexts that bring a different sense to one’s existence, MONSOON is a personal journey of the 1st generation who want to fulfill the legacies of their refugee parents by bringing them home.
