About the Film
In the 1970‘s, one out of every seven Cambodians died at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, a communist guerilla army. The Khmer Rouge tried to annihilate everything Cambodians believed in: the family, dance, music, and their Buddhist religion. Facing death and devastation, 150,000 Cambodians fled to America. This one -hour documentary examines the refugees‘ efforts to adjust to Western life, and the significant role played by the Buddhist culture in this difficult process.
