Cambodia 1981. After the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime, a woman flees a country in fire and blood. She holds a baby in her arms. Forty years later, confronted with her mother’s silence forged by trauma and time, the director decides to embark on a long journey. From the Cambodian jungle, through the former refugee camps of Thailand and Indonesia, to the asylum-seekers centres in France, she tries to reconstruct the story of their survival and to open up the paths of memory and transmission.

 

In collaboration with the French Consulate General in Quebec and TENK
