What is 'district nine'? Thanks.

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.!

It is one of the districts of HCMC.

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?
