“Ru,” based on Kim Thúy’s Governor General’s Award-winning novel, chronicles the incredible journey of a wealthy Vietnamese family escaping their homeland and finding sanctuary in Montreal, Canada. Their odyssey includes a perilous sea voyage and a stay in a Malaysian refugee camp. The narrative primarily centres on Tinh, a young Vietnamese girl, who faces the daunting task of adapting to her new life in Montreal. Already naturally reserved and shy, she must now grapple with the challenge of learning a new language and integrating into her unfamiliar surroundings.

Haunted by the memories of their arduous journey, Tinh’s resilience becomes paramount to her survival and pursuit of happiness in her new home. “Ru” is a poignant exploration of the profound struggles and triumphs of a refugee family as they endeavour to build a better future in a foreign land.
