Noble

Synopsis: Vietnam. 1989. Fourteen years after the end of the war. When Irish woman Christina Noble flies into Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) she leaves behind an extraordinary life story. But the best is yet to come. Christina lands in a country "that she wouldn't be able to show you on a map". With a few dollars, a dream and her own hard-won courage, she is about to change everything. For hundreds of thousands of people. Forever. NOBLE is the inspirational true story of a woman who believes that it only takes one person to make a difference. And of how she is proved right.

You won't admit you love me

And so

how am I ever to know?

You always tell me

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

A million times

I've asked you

And then

I ask you over again

You only answer

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

If you can't

make your mind up

We'll never get started

And I don't wanna wind up

Being parted,

broken-hearted

So if you really love me

Say yes

But if you don't, dear,

confess

But please don't tell me

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

You should have been

in school today, Christina,

and every other day.

You'll never catch me,

Inspector Clark.

That's what they all say.

I'll catch you, all right,

and I'll tell the judge to

send you off to Cuan Mhuire,

the old nuns will teach you

manners there.

In your dreams, mister.

There we go.

One, two, yeah.

Well? I won a singing competition, Dad.

I got a voucher

for my dress.

You are going to be

a big star.

Do you promise me? Of course

I do. You have a great talent.

And you didn't

lick it off the stones.

Here, did I ever tell yous

about the time,

I won the

All Ireland boxing?

Daddy was on the ropes.

Yeah, Dad.

Hilda Brannigan had a weakness,

so I punched him hard

in the ribs.

And he looks at me,

he starts

to stagger sideways,

Then the coup de grace,

boom...

and he goes down,

like a bleeding stone.

And that made you champion,

did it, Dad?

It did.

Come on, get up.

Could have gone to America

myself after that.

All the promoters

were interested.

Why didn't you go,

Dad?

Because I met your ma,

and that was the end of me.

Come on you.

If we don't get home,

she'll think we did a bunk.

Come on, Christina.

If we don't go now,

they'll be sold out.

Be careful there,

Christina.

Don't worry about me,

Mrs. Doyle.

Aw, good girl.

Thanks, love.

I don't know

what happened to me there.

It must have been the excitement

seeing her all grown up.

No need to speak

No more shall I seek

For my heart

has taught me their meaning

I saw your eyes

Your wonderful eyes

With love, light

and tenderness feeling

Your father isn't coming home

anytime soon.

Christina,

bring your plate over.

I'm not hungry, Mum.

An hour ago you said

you could eat a horse.

That was an hour ago.

Is it horse stew

we're having, Mum?

Have you heard me?

What's this?

Oh, Danny boy

The pipes,

the pipes are calling

From glen to glen

And down the mountainside

The summer's gone

And all the flowers

are dying

'Tis you, 'tis you

Must go and I must bide

Christina...

come on, get up...

quickly now.

Oh, will you get the children

after school, Mrs. Kelly?

And look out

to the little ones for the day.

I will, love,

don't you be worrying.

That's it. That's it.

Excuse me now.

And he looks like

a complete fool.

...Mum.

Look, I wore me dress for you.

I'm sorry I've been asking

too many things.

You don't have to make me like

Dorset, if you don't want to.

I don't have to go to America.

I'll stay here

so long as you don't let me

lovely mum die.

Sure you won't, God?

It's time for you to go

on home now, Christina.

I don't want to go home.

That's as may be,

but your daddy's

waiting on you.

God told me to stay here.

He says

he's going to cure my mum,

if I stay here.

That's enough nonsense.

God can't cure everyone.

You're expected home.

Glasses off.

You don't need

to be anxious.

It just takes a long time

to get through immigration.

I'm okay,

don't worry about me.

You've been here

before obviously.

Twelve times.

You must like it.

Oh, I love it.

The people are fantastic.

The countryside,

the beach, the food.

What's not to like?
