How do the children of Vietnamese parents view Vietnam – those who speak better Czech than Vietnamese and who feel more in touch with Western culture than with that of their parents? This film tries to answer such questions by combining documentary scenes with elements of acting and a clear dramatic arc. For one of two brothers, a forced journey to Vietnam becomes an opportunity to better understand his origins, and thus his own parents and even himself. Czech viewers get a chance to see behind the wall of uniform cultural stereotypes and breathe life-giving movement into the minority.

Mat goc – a negative term for a member of the Vietnamese community who does not honor the principles of traditional Vietnamese culture. Literally translates to “lost his roots.”
