Where Are You Going? Hanoi

Catherine Carr uncovers strangers' amazing stories in Vietnam, by asking them one simple question - Where are you going?

An interrupted journey is like a portal into somebody else’s life. In this programme, Catherine Carr invites strangers to pause on their way from A to B and asks them one simple question: ‘Where Are You Going?’

In the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, Catherine meets the feminist teenagers who dream of equality and a jet-setting seven-year-old who is already worried about college. She meets a depressed new mother struggling to cope, and a teenager praying for good exam grades. The exchanges can be funny, sad or sweet or simply unforgettable. Mixed with the sounds of the city, the stories create a poetic and unpredictable listen.
