Good Morning, Viet Mom
Good Morning, Viet Mom is Franco Nguyen’s hilarious and heartfelt story about a second-generation Canadian being raised in Toronto by his single mother. Nguyen shares personal stories about his childhood, about his relationship with his mother–a complex and private woman, and about their emotional trip to Vietnam together; his first time ever and her first time since she left 28 years ago. Authentic and irreverent, Good Morning, VietMom is about family, history and love.
