Swann Dubus, Tran Phuong Thao
Running Time: 80'
Thi and Trung live in the gorgeous, rice-terraced mountains of Vietnam's far northwest. Like many young men in this region on the main heroin route from Laos to China, they're addicts, and they have HIV. Thi wants to kick his habit. Trung just wants to die. With or Without Me is an intimate, tragicomic portrayal of two guys strung out at the edge of the map in a country struggling with drug use, and of the wives, family, doctors, and friends trying to pull them back from the brink.
