    • Synopsis
    • Using the Khmer Rouge Tribunal as a starting point, Susanne Brandstätter takes a deeper look into the lives of young cambodians on the brink of adulthood. As the trial accusing a perpetrator of the Pol Pot regime progresses, it becomes a cata- lyst for a new generation of Cambodians questioning their parents, families and neighbors about the inhumanities their nation has suffered.
      Brandstätter accompanies three families on two different continents – two cambo- dian families and an immigrated cambo- dian family in Paris, France – recognizing that the truth is only to be found among those who survived and that the past can best be questioned by those who are about to build a future.
