    • Synopsis
    • Diamond Island is a symbol of Cambodia's future, a sprawling, ultra-modern paradise for the rich on the river in Phnom Penh.
      Like many other country boys, Bora, 18, is lured from his village to work on the construction of this property developers' dream.
      There, he forges new friendships and is even reunited with his charismatic older brother Solei, who disappeared five years ago.
      Solei introduces Bora to the exciting world of Cambodia's privileged urban youth, with its girls, its nightlife and its illusions.
