Synopsis:  With no shortage of sweeping takes of Vietnam’s lush countryside and ragged seaside cliffs, Yellow Flowers on Green Grass evokes a return to childhood through the story of two young brothers who share an inseparable, yet complicated and tumultuous bond. Jealousy erupts into violence when Thieu and Tuong compete for the attention and affection of a young girl who lives nearby, and the brothers’ once-endearing relationship turns into heated rivalry. Set in the mid-1980s in a poor countryside village, the film offers perspective on life in rural Central Vietnam before the country’s current economic boom.

The nostalgic story is based on the award-winning and best-selling novel I See Yellow Flowers Upon the Green Grass by Nguyen Nhat Anh. The cinematic adaptation introduces a whole new wave of cinema emerging from Vietnam. Directed by top Vietnamese filmmaker Victor Vu, Yellow Flowers on Green Grass captures the energy, dynamism and introspective storytelling of a society in transition.
