VSU’s 32nd annual Vietnamese Culture Night

Published by:

The Vietnamese Student Union (VSU) at UCLA proudly invites you to the 32nd Annual Vietnamese Culture Night on Monday, January 16, 2012 at UCLA Royce Hall, from 7 PM to 10 PM.

Chasing Bets
Nga Re Cuoc Doi

Vietnamese Culture Night 2012 proudly presents Chasing Bets-Nga Re Cuoc Doi. This year’s show is a night about pushing your luck, whether with love or money. The drama follows the lives of a Vietnamese family- starring the parents, eldest son, and two younger sisters. A story about loyalty, addiction, and love; Vietnamese-American daughter, Mai, must face the battle between being a loyal Vietnamese sister, while pursuing her own love with an interracial engagement. Through Mai’s struggle, we learn deep and hidden secrets about her entire family that mirrors many stories within the Southeast Asian community today. In unprecedented times, each member of the family faces a set of challenges unique to their generation. Follow our characters in their quest for strength, identity, opportunity, and most importantly, the value of family during difficult times. Chasing Bets is not only about chasing material wealth, but any bet that has the possibility to change everything.
