Robert Lieberman presents an intimate portrait of the bloody history of Cambodia and its troubled present. The murder of millions of Cambodians by the Khmer Rouge still haunts the survivors who largely chose silence as a means of dealing with the horrifying memories. Has this ignorance of their history condemned the post-Khmer Rouge generation to repeat it? The narrative considers this possibility as it explores the agitations by the modern Cambodian youth, seeking a present and future that rivals what they see of the world outside.
