SET AGAINST THE EXOTIC BEAUTY AND ANCIENT CULTURE OF CAMBODIA, TWO YOUNG ORPHANS, PIM AND CHAMRON, EMBARK UPON A LIVE CHANGING JOURNEY OF YEARNING IN SEARCH OF THE FAMILY THEY NEVER HAD. ALONE AND AGAINST THE WORLD THEY MEET KITH, AN OLDER BOY. KITH TAKES THEM UNDER HIS WING, SHOWING THEM HOW TO SURVIVE AS THE THREE TRAVEL ONWARD TO THE SEA. SLOWLY PIM AND KITH FALL FOR EACH OTHER, DISCOVERING THE LOVE FOR WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN SEARCHING. ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE ISSUES IN THE FILM HAVE A HEAVY TONE, THERE IS AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF HUMOUR AND HAPPINESS, REFLECTIVE OF CAMBODIANS' LOVE FOR LIFE. THE FILM EXPLORES OUR YEARNING TO BE RESPECTED, APPRECIATED AND LOVED, TO FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE YOU IN THEIR ARMS AND HOLD ON TO FOREVER.
