Set in New York, “Dạ Cổ Hoài Lang” (Hello Vietnam!) tells the story of Ong Tu, who escapes his nursing home to celebrate his wife’s death anniversary. Together with his friend, Ong Nam, they reminisce about the “good old days” back in Vietnam, but generational and cultural gaps threaten to tear Ong Tu and his estranged granddaughter apart.

In “Bạn Gái Tôi Là Sếp” (My Girlfriend is the Boss), Cuong and Oanh have been keeping their relationship a secret, as the bank they work for has a strict “No Fraternisation” policy. They soon arrive at a realisation that for them to marry, one of them has to resign. When an ATM glitch in Ho Chi Minh city cashes out extra money, these two Type-A overachievers race each other to see who is able to recover the money first, becoming the one to keep their job.

“798mười” (798TEN) is an action-comedy featuring a duo, Tám (8) and Bích, who grew up in poverty. In love, they plan to build their lives together, but their dream is cut short when Bích’s dad, gambler Chín (9) becomes indebted to Trùm Rô, a local mobster, and is forced to marry Bích off to him to pay the debt. To save the woman he loves, Tám recruits Bảy (7), a cab driver, and with Chín, schemes to trick money from Tám’s martial arts-practising blind cousin Mười (10). Together, the four find themselves on a rescue adventure full of laughter and deception.
