During the French colonial era, a young Northern Vietnamese woman must satisfy a French General’s taste for traditional cuisine in order to save her family from execution. À La Carte’s visual style aims to recreate the feeling of a traditional Vietnamese poem, featuring themes of calmness and Zen.

Jay Do (aka Hung Duc Do) directs films in Vietnam and studies Film in Los Angeles. Jay began his career in theatre before falling in love with the art form of cinema. He currently works across film, media and theatre, and À La Carte is his fourth short film.
