Synopsis: In the 70's, a Cambodian middle-class girl sees the lives of her family and her turning upside-down when the Khmer Rouge invades the Cambodia. They leave their comfortable apartment and lifestyle to live in a primitive working camp. Her father, a former officer, is killed and the family splits to survive.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

It’s a very textural score, it was tough because it’s not a harmonic or melodic score in a traditional sense. The story is shown through the eyes of a six-year-old Cambodian girl, and it’s been a challenge to channel my inner six year old girl! But Angelina is very creative and she’s made a very personal movie for her, and it was great to be part of that experience.
