No Frogs, No rice

Directed by Socheat Cheng, 2015, 10mn, Khmer version with English subtitles

Touch Sokea, a 34 year-old divorced mother of two children, is from Kompong Speu province. Without any financial support from her ex-husband who was violent, left her and remarried, Sokea works hard and spends the tittle money she earns very carefully, because she has a dream: to give her 13 year-old daughter a higher education. She does not want her children to be uneducated and live in poverty like herself. Even if she earns only less than one dollar a day, she still feels happy to be able to live with her two children, and never loses the hope that they represent for her.
