Huyen is a teenage girl who gets pregnant from a young loafer and finds herself forced to fall into prostitution in order to save money for an abortion. Ironically, the only customer who is willing to pay is a man who is obsessed with pregnant women. The situation becomes even more complicated because this man makes Huyen so happy that she almost forgets that there is a baby growing inside of her.
A refreshingly unabashed female perspective examines what happens when young woman, barely an adult is confronted with life-altering decisions.
Born in 1982, Nguyen Hoang Diep founded VBLOCK Media, an independent studio focused on art films and experimental projects. VBLOCK Media has produced Bi don’t be afraid, that went on to win a record number of awards at international film festivals. Flapping in the middle of nowhere is her debut feature film.
