This short documentary was produced as part of a research project on youth and public spaces in Hanoi (Vietnam). It explores the reality of young female labour migrants moving from rural to urban areas of Vietnam. It opens a window on these young women’s relationships to Hanoi’s public spaces, on the obstacles they face in trying to use them, and on their aspirations as temporary or permanent denizens. Directors: Tran Thi Kieu Thanh Ha (HealthBridge Vietnam) and Le Cam Nhung (Vietnamese Women Museum).
