Two Mothers is a poetic, impressionistic film that invites you to reconsider established cultural concepts.
An East German and a Vietnamese family enter into a borderless adoption to keep their Vietnamese son, Chau, from deportation from Germany. Sixteen years later, Chau introduces his heritage to his German family as they travel together in Vietnam for the first time. Voyaging through the ancient culture of Vietnam, they re-evaluate the very concepts of family, society, responsibility, and freedom. The family realizes which clashes between cultures and opposing political will they truly have overcome.
