Having left her poor farming village for the shining lights of Saigon at 13, Mai Khoi decides to become a pop star. In her 20’s and four albums later she has failed to produce a hit. When she releases the song “Vietnam”, an ode to the beauty of her country, she becomes a sensation. Television performances every night, the song being used to promote tourism by the Communist Party, it’s everything she ever wanted; money, fame, and the blessing of the Vietnamese Communist government whose state-run media keeps her in the limelight. Yet, when she begins to use her power to speak out against that very government, they throw everything at her. Risking her life and refusing to stay silent, Khoi uses her power to stand up and fight against the government oppression and inspire others to join her.
