In Saigon, family culture holds on against all odds, even when filial ties are broken. In a mosaic of intimate portraits, Má Sài Gòn adopts the gaze of LGBTQ+ communities to explore a deeply human quest for love, acceptance, connection and belonging. The film is a love letter – a luminous yet melancholy ode to a mother who is both troubling and reassuring, to a city that is as oppressive as it is liberating.
