Every year, a huge number Cambodian people illegally move to Thailand to work via intermediaries. Those “brokers” charge them a high commission to go to Thailand saying that it is a land of opportunities. Instead, they are trapped in a situation of slavery: no wages paid, deprivation of liberty and private life, sexual assault, drugs, tortures… The film focuses on a sad reality of modern slavery.
