Yearning to attract its expatriates home, Vietnam has officially changed Ho Chi Minh City to Saigon once again. Vietnam hopes to harness the talents, education, and creativity that four and a half million Việt Kiều accumulated over the years.
Architect and real estate developer Jasper left Vietnam more than forty years ago and was eager to return to his beloved Saigon, where he was born and raised, to bring green and sustainable architecture to its inhabitants.
Follow him into three countries as he escaped from Vietnam after the war as a boat refugee to find a better future in the US, only to later land in Sweden.
Cà Phê Đen is a light-hearted story, with occasional gut-wrenching heartbreaks, of a mother's unconditional love and sacrifice, a tale of love and betrayal, and a love reunited after half a century of separation.
