A young woman searching for a better life discovers her great opportunity is actually a sordid trap in this drama from Vietnam. Mai (Hong Anh) is a seventeen-year-old girl growing up in a small village in central Vietnam. Mai's mother works hard to support the family while her father is more interested in chasing other women than helping his children. Mai wants to help her mother with the bills, but work is hard to find in the village, so when a broker tells her he can arrange for her to work in an embroidery shop in Saigon, she jumps at the chance. However, when Mai arrives in the big city, she finds that she's been lied to, and that she's expected to make her way as a prostitute. With few options, Mai accepts life in the brothel as her fate, but when she learns that her fifteen-year-old sister Minh is being recruited for the same sort of "textile" work, she makes her way back home, hoping to stop Minh before it's too late. Trai Tim Be Bong (aka The Little Heart) was an official entry at the 2008 Bangkok International Film Festival.
