Tam Cam: The Untold Story is a drama fantasy adaption of a traditional Vietnamese fairy tale, not unlike the story of Cinderella.

The film follows Tam (Ha Vi) as she is tormented by her cruel stepmother Di Ghe (Veronica Ngo) and her stepsister Cam (Ninh Duong Lan Ngoc) after her father dies.

Tam is forced into doing all the menial tasks and household chores, fortunately for her she has a good, grandfather-like, fairy on her side, just like Cinderella. After Tam meets her own Prince Charming Isaac (Thai Tu )and things start to look up the film starts on another direction, adding more sinister tones to what we might expect from the traditional Cinderella story.

The plot thickens with epic battle scenes, political power play, as well as martial arts and monsters getting thrown in the mix The stunning costume design captivates the eye and the dream-like shots will mesmerize.

Tam Cam: The Untold Story is Veronica Ngo’s second work as a director, her first one being The Lost Dragon (2015). Ngo has made an extensive career in acting and cinema, as well as in singing and modelling. The films also features music theme song performed by the famous  365DABAND.
