A beautiful flight attendant looking for love. A lonely zookeeper hiding within his animal kingdom from a changing society. A little orphan girl selling roses on the streets. It's modern-day Saigon, where eight million people are just trying to keep up with the pace.

I'm excited to see Cat Ly starred in another another movie. She made a big transformation as the singer in Van Son Production to being an actress. Her big debut was in Journey From The Fall along with Diem Lien who made a big start in the movie industry. I have not seen this movie, but I will watch it when I have a chance. By the way, check out other films, Saigon Eclipse, The Rebel, Saigon Love Story, Derailed Heart, Journey From The Fall, The Spirits and The White Silk Dress.
