When speaking about the subject of “longing” in this country– people will oftentimes imagine a sacrificial Vietnamese woman who quietly tidies the house in the wait for her husband and children to come home. They all have one thing in common which is the endless love for their family, but in the process they tend to neglect themselves, forgetting to nurture their mind and beauty. Tia-Thuy Nguyen’s interoperation of the word “longing” is entirely different. She decides to wait in complete peace and contentment. “Longing” is the manifesto for a dynamic and modern woman who comprehends both self-value and family values, allowing them to co-exist. She is a caring yet resourceful woman.
