Bong Thom - the big brother (working title)


A story about two brothers and their mother from rural Cambodia. The mother runs the family farm, and the brothers make romantic music videos in the big city of Phnom Penh. One has strong arms, the other does not.

Their relationships reflect a world after the Khmer Rouge; a country that, after decades of peace, still lives in the echo of war.
