Camellia are beautiful flowers that represent love and loyalty, two qualities that are in short supply in the Ly family. In the gorgeous camellia flower gardens of their beautiful palace, conflicts involving love, loyalty, and honour surround three fabulously wealthy sisters who each hide secret schemes and a desperate desire for love. Eldest sibling Ly Le Han (Le Khanh), a cunning manipulator, has roped melodramatic middle-sister Ly Le Hong (Kaity NGUYEN) into an antique auction fraud but that comes under threat when strong-willed youngest sister Ly Linh (Hong Van) tries to steal a royal robe to further her own career. On the night of the auction, the treasure suddenly disappears and this causes drama for… THE CAMELLIA SISTERS.

Winner of the 2021 Golden Kite Award for Best Director of a feature film, Camellia Sisters is an all-out melodramatic assault on the senses with insane production values and operatic levels of drama full of scheming, betrayals, handsome guys, and shock revelations springing out of the story to make it more fun.
