Synopsis

The massacre carried out by the American Army against the civilian population of My Lai left 500 dead and two survivors, Nam and Lien, aged 5 and 3 years old at the time. Today they both work at the My Lai Museum, he as a caretaker, she as a cleaner. Every day, Lien cleans the objects, photos and reconstructed scenes that evoke the nightmare. Nam tells us that, when he is on duty at night, he often sees apparitions, phantoms which appear and cross through the cemetery and the gardens of the Museum. But he isn’t afraid because he knows them all. They are all relatives and neighbours. This is his way of living with that past.
