Mokichi is the widowed father of three daughters, with whom he lives on the premises of a temple since the war. All three daughters become involved in complicated relationships. The sisters and their attached men are deliberately designed as allegorical figures on the changing social conditions. In the end it is a sentimental comedy which is fun no matter what happens.

Tanaka Kinuyo is considered one of the most promising young talents in the Vietnamese film industry of the last 10 years. In 2013 he made his first short film 16:30 which won several awards and participated in the Cannes Film Festival. With Rom, which is her first feature film, Tran Than Huy tries to represent the dynamics of lottery gambling, which, despite being illegal in Vietnam, are quite popular among middle-class families like the director himself, who in order to move up socially can gamble with their house, family and even their lives.
