The film’s distributor, Galaxy Studio, has announced it is working with international partners to bring "Bo Gia" to Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The movie was previously screened in Singapore and Malaysia in April, after raking in VND400 billion ($17.4 million) to become the highest-grossing Vietnamese movie ever.

The movie achieved a number of milestones along the way, becoming the fastest to collect VND100 billion ($4.3 million) and VND200 billion ($8.6 million).

The film is adaptation of a hit web drama directed by Vu Ngoc Dang stars comedian and TV host Tran Thanh.

The web version, released on YouTube in early 2020, was the most viewed in Vietnam with its five episodes garnering more than 90 million hits.

It tells the story of Ba Sang, an old motorbike-taxi driver who lives in a low-income neighborhood of downtown Saigon and struggles to earn enough to take care of his family. Way too nice to his siblings and neighbors, Sang is routinely taken advantage of, to the ire of his son, a rising YouTuber who tries to force his father to change his ways.
