Summer in closed eyes is the journey of the girl named Ha (Summer), played by actor Phuong Anh Dao, the story begins when Ha is coming to the town of Higashikawa, Hokkaido, Japan to find his father ( artist Cong Ninh undertakes). It's a new direction - exploring the snow-capped region in summer, where her father lived for a long time and here she met the Japanese guy - Akira (played by Takafumi Akutsu).

Nhi, one of the industry’s few independent film makers, said her Vietnamese and Japanese crew spent nearly two years filming the production.

She received financial support for her film project from a Japanese producer.

“We worked hard in casting, with dozens of experts in language, costume design and props to perfect our production technically and socially,” said Nhi, a graduate of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Theatre and Cinematography. “Our film is about human culture.”
