Directed by Phally Ngoeum & Namratha Thomas, 2016, Khmer Version
Sokha is a 14- year-old Phnom Penh based daughter of Vietnamese immigrant parents. Due to their family’s socio-economic status they are barely able to make ends meet, let alone being able to send Sokha to school. Sokha instead goes to Tiny Toones, a vocational school that recruits children from the poorest slums of Phnom Penh to engage and educate them in breakdancing, Khmer, English and computing. Sokha dreams to be able to go to school one day like other kids, but as she puts, “what can I do when I come from a poor family?”
