Synopsis: 

Twice a year in Cambodia, the Tonle Sap River changes its course, while the life of the Cambodian people continues to flow in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth, and of creation and destruction. We travel to Cambodgia to capture the stories of three young Cambodians struggling to maintain their traditional way of life while the modern world closes in around them. From Cambodia’s forests to its rivers, from its idyllic rice fields to the capital’s pulsing heart, forces of radical change are transforming the landscape of the country - and the dreams of its people.
