What begins as a picturesque journey through the “Golden Land of thousand Pagodas” ends up in Burma’s jungle, where hundred thousands of internally displaced people struggle for survival. Driven from their villages due to forced relocation, forced labour, torture, arbitrary killings and many other human rights violations, the film gives voice to the thousands who continue to be persecuted by the military junta.
