Summary
"Floating lives takes place during the peak of the avian flu outbreak in Southeast Asia, where a poor family of duck herders evades government officials and dangerous gangs scattered throughout the Mekong Delta. The family travels exclusively by a worn-down rickety house boat, serving as both their mode of transportation as well as their perpetual home. ... Completely severed from the advancements of the Vietnamese economic miracle, the struggles of this family remind audiences that many people living on the periphery are often left behind, even sacrificed in the name of progress"--Vietnamese International Film Festival WWW site
