The Little One (0+)

Czech republic, 2017, colour, 10 min.
Director: Diana Cam Van Nguyen
The Little One says the story of Rong (6 yrs.), a small girl who lives in the Czech Republic as a foreigner. While growing up Rong experiences various unpleasant situations connected to her Vietnamese origin – looking different from the other children. Rong is silent and spends most of the time with her fish – her closest being. Getting older Rong gains self-confidence and in 18 years of her age Rong can even support her sister Lilly in the same struggles Rong knows herself – from her own childhood – teaches her that being different does not mean being worse. As it happens Rong´s family is once forced to leave the country for Vietnam which makes Rong decide – shall she stay in a country where she feels home or go back to Vietnam – her birthplace though the strange one?
