Synopsis


The award-winning short "Down The Stream" tells the story and dreams of the children who live on the river in Long Xuyên, Vietnam.

They seem to live a rather harsh life with no real access to education, a limited supply of food and other things we most of the times take for granted. Despite all of this, they appear to be extremely joyous, grateful, responsible and having big dreams for the future.
