Tran Thanh Huy
Running Time: 1h 19min
Ròm is a boy with a talent for numbers, but like everyone else in this film, he doesn’t have much luck. He is relentlessly optimistic, however, believing in the signs and running lottery numbers for those who trust his ad hoc visions. His clients, a group of neighbours in a housing complex facing eviction and Ròm, in need of money so he can leave town to look for his lost parents, are desperate for a win. Everything for everyone is on the line. First time Director Tran Thanh Huy pushes this fact home with unstoppable pacing, driving the main character through back alleys and the traffic of highway overpasses.
