This documentary film, directed by Eric Galmard, looks at the life of Khun Srun, a brilliant Cambodian writer who joined the Khmer Rouge in 1973 only to be executed by the regime in 1978. The film aims to bring attention to his literary voice, combined with a present-day focus on his daughter, Khun Khem, the only surviving member of the family.
