3 Days More

Directed by Chanrado Sok, 2015, 7mn, Khmer version with English subtitles

Yey Lon, a 58-year-old widow, lives in a tiny mezzanine room with her son in Phnom Penh. As her son does not work, she struggles to make a living for the two of them. She spends her days doing the laundry and “coining” in different parts of the city but despite her hard work, she earns less than two dollars per day on average. As the price of the rent is increasing, she is threatened with eviction by the landlord. She also has to buy expensive medicine for her son. She is getting older, her strength is failing and she is afraid of being unable to pay the rent and the other daily expenses anymore.
