I assume this is a reference to the movie District 9 (link to IMDB).

Thanks. I live in US and I like Sci-Fi movies and yet I had to learn about this one by taking a foreign language course! LOL.!

Thank you Nico! It looks like HCMC has districts similar to Paris. Other than the fact that it has a French High School, do you know anything else that stands out in District 9?

"They will return from district nine on Independence Day" is rejected as wrong. Should it?
