Synopsis
Born in a Thai refugee camp on the Cambodian New Year, documentary filmmaker Socheata Poeuv was deemed by her family "the lucky one," fated to good fortune. As a child growing up in the United States, she knew that her parents had survived brutal oppression and genocide under the Khmer Rouge, but they never spoke of it aloud, and she had never witnessed any atrocities firsthand. Nevertheless, black-clothed figures made their way into her nightmares, and lurked in the shadows of her bedroom. Twenty-five years later in the suburbs of Texas, her parents make a startling admission, and the impact of the Khmer Rouge suddenly becomes very real. Impelled to confront and give human face to her childhood shadows, Socheata travels to Cambodia to unravel the mystery shrouding her family's survival and eventual escape. Her voyage parallels her family's emotional journey through a series of revelations: unimaginable sacrifice; promises made and kept; the fierce and solemn love for those who were left behind, and finally, one long unsung hero, a "Cambodian cowboy," is unveiled.
