Description

The story of Dr. Hain S Ngor a man who was not only a doctor, a Hollywood movie star, a survivor of the Cambodian Holocaust, a man who became a worldwide ambassador for justice in his homeland. However, before the wealth, before “The Killing Fields”, before the survivor, before the ambassador, there was a young boy, defined as a trouble maker, smart, who grew up in a time of peace until tragedy struck. Through a blend of animation and rare archival material, and narrated by Ngor’s very own powerful voice; comes this documentary that beautifully depicts the horrible sequences of the Khmer Rouge period over Cambodia are experienced through a politically charged transnational journey of loss and reconciliation.

Through an inspired blend of original animation and rare archival material – anchored by Ngor’s richly layered autobiography – the years encapsulating the Khmer Rouge’s tyrannical rule over Cambodia are experienced through a politically charged transnational journey of loss and reconciliation.

Arthur Dong creates this documentary to take the journey as if it were the very same journey in which it Ngor himself took and shows the very same scenes that Ngor saw with his very own eyes.
