With a duration of one hour and fifty-seven minutes, Song of the South (2023) is an NR-rated film that explores the turbulent journey of An, a young child who is lost and trying to find his father. The story, which is based on a novel by Doan Gioi, follows An as he interacts with a wide range of people, each of whom adds a level of nuance to his journey. These include the undercover teacher Bay, the robber Ut Luc Lam, the brave Vo Tong, the knowledgeable Sino Master Tieu, Uncle Ba Phi, the youthful snake catcher Co, and Xinh, a theatergoer. General Durie pieces together his true origins as the son of a wanted rebel as An's story is told. Durie employs An as a crucial bait in a plot that can result in a disastrous clash at the village's Mid-Autumn festival, with the help of his mistress Tu Mam. With increased tension and unexpected turns at every turn, this drama genre film veers into an unanticipated crescendo of events.
