The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recently announced that its production company had already sent the English-subtitled version of the film and hard disc to the organizers before December 1.

Based on popular writer Nguyen Nhat Anh’s novel of the same name, "Dreamy Eyes" depicts the love story of Ngan, a rural boy, and his childhood friend during their school years. Even though the girl falls for a rich man and leaves Ngan, he remains by her side.
