Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, Last Christmas) stars in the rich and poignant Monsoon, a visual and emotional tour-de-force from BAFTA-nominated director, Hong Khaou (Lilting). Kit (Golding) returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since his family fled Vietnam in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. He was just six years old at the time and, after thirty years away, he longs to make sense of himself in a city that no longer feels familiar. As he embarks on a personal journey across the country, searching for his identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present, he gradually finds opportunities for friendship, love and happiness.
