The film was produced by renowned actress Ngo Thanh Van and directed by Kay Nguyen and Tran Buu Loc.

The film is about a young tailor named Nhu Y in the 1960s. She was born into a family of tailors who specialised in making Ao Dai. By some kind of miracle, she travels to the future and meets herself a few decades later. She witnesses the tragedy of her family’s trade in the future, which resulted from the fact that she had turned her back on the craft. She then realises the value of the traditional career and learns respect for the long dress.

The movie was internationally released at 22nd Busan International Film Festival on October 14th 2017 in South Korea, before the official release in Vietnam on November 10th 2017. After one month, the movie earned more than VND60 billion (USD2.72 million) in theatrical revenues.

It also awarded Best Feature Film at the Golden Kite Awards by the Vietnamese Cinema Association in 2017 and has been screened at various international film festivals.

Each country is allowed to send one entry to the Best Foreign Film category at Oscars, which should be screened between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018. The jury will announce the five nominees early next year and the final results will be announced in Los Angeles on February 24, 2019.
