Arriving to her new life by ceremonial canoe is May, the 14-year-old third wife of a wealthy landowner in 19th century rural Vietnam. She quickly needs to adapt to her new home: relationship with the other wives, playing with the children, and of course competition and family politics... with glances over dialogue and a beautiful impressionistic palette, The Third Wife chronicles the days of May from childhood to motherhood in a time and place in which women are expected to suppress their desires while performing duties for men.
