A sensuous and timeless film on love, loss and yearning set in the exquisitely beautiful Mekong Delta of Vietnam. Floating Lives tells a story of Mr. Vo and his children: his daughter Nuong and his son Dien. Vo, a man wounded by his wife's infidelity, has burned down his house and all his memories of the past. He has restarted his life with his two children, living on a boat in nomadic existence among the labyrinth canals of the Mekong. He is an exile not because of the war - now only a distant memory in Vietnam - but from the modern life and materialism that he sees as the reason for his wife giving into the temptations of self-indulgence.
