This documentary is an intimate portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and often violent developments shaping modern-day Cambodia. Shot over six years, the film charts  the gradual politicisation of two young mothers and one Buddhist monk, the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the ‘Cambodian Spring’, and the tragic events that followed.

Screened at last year’s IFI Documentary Festival, and winner at Hot Docs for Best International Feature, the film is about the complexities, both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in.
