Three women working street-side in a crowded city intersection. A group of men bathing naked on a quiet island in the middle of a slow moving river. A security guard of the rail station patrolling on the bridge above it. Beside the river, in the street, and along the rails with the people of the Long Bien neighborhood in Hanoi, Vietnam, four filmmakers work simultaneously and independently to produce a gently unfolding documentary mosaic of difficult living, compassion, and direct observations of life and culture in contemporary urban Vietnam. In one place and at one time—four directors, four views.
