Mrs. Chin Run is 65 years old. During the Khmer Rouge, she built dikes and dug canals. One day, she and another group of women secretly ran home. She visited her mother. But not many days later, she was called back. The Khmer Rouge forced her to marry, but she refused. What hurt her and made her unable to forget was her living apart from her parents and the loss of her two siblings in the Khmer Rouge.
