Sad but Good
A fourteen year-old Cambodian boy grows tired of carrying sacks of fertilzer to rice fields to support his mother, father, brother and sister. He seeks a better life after hearing of a chance to make decent money in the factories of Thailand. A broker picks him and a group of others and drops them off where they are broken up into smaller groups. The boy is put on a fishing trawler with a vicious captain and his crew. He and his fellow workers are treated terribly and couple of them revolt and the captain takes care of them in a horrible manner. The kid carries the film, which at ninety-two minutes moves along quite briskly. This is a great foreign movie.
