Monsoon follows the story of Kit (Henry Golding), a young British Vietnamese man who returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time in over 30 years. He was just six years old when he and his family escaped Saigon as ‘boat refugees’ after the Vietnam-American War.
Kit struggles to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with. He embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.
During his travels, Kit finally starts to connect to the memories of his parents and his own roots.
