A film portraying a lot of strong stories in a respectful and open way.

Amazing cinematography, combined with strong stories, wonderful poetry, and an ambience radiating throughout the theater.

If you ever visited Myanmar, this brings you back, with all its flavors. If you never visited Myanmar, you can through this movie.
