A lonely, uptight lexicographer struggles to find love in Saigon while grappling with the untimely death of his first love.


 

About the Film

An is a lexicographer who works for a publishing company named "White Giraffe." He has a passion for reading and hosts weekly book clubs to have discussions about his favorite stories. He looks for love in Saigon where he could share his love for language and literature. After his first love had passed away, An struggles to cope with this memory as he moves on with his life.
 
One day, An was set up on a blind date by his best friend, Minh. Spending a wonderful evening with the lady, both An and his blind date exchange goodbye's and leave unimpressed. At a particular street, An gets distracted looking at a couple at a distance and almost gets hit by a rushing driver. The driver and An face in a silly argument on driving regulations until the next day, little did An know that the driver was the new hire to the publishing company he works at.
 
Like the Annie-and-Frank style from Annie Get Your Gun, the new transferring linguist and the lexicographer engage in a few conflicts here and there. As time goes by, An opens up to her as she shows a similar interest in literature and they travel down the memory lane of his past romance.

Why Support Us?

This is the first feature film that Anh Le will be directing, writing, and producing with wonderful support from her team. We are fortunate to have been accepted for the fiscal sponsorship opportunity through From the Heart Productions where their focus is in supporting independent filmmakers who create stories that make a good contribution to society. While receiving amazing discount opportunities through their organization for high-quality equipment and professional training in film financing and distribution, we will walk out with a feature film that will be beautifully recorded with the original score and soundtrack.

All supporters would receive credit under "Special Thanks" in the movie along with personal updates as we progress in our filmmaking journey. Plus, donations are tax-deductible through this platform. Every dollar will be maximized to enhance the potential that this film can share.

With your TAX DEDUCTIBLE contribution, not only will our film achieve the financial needs to make it happen, but you will be also helping out a team who wants to bring awareness to mental health and share some love for the Vietnamese language. We look forward to sharing this project with you!
