Sweet Cake

Directed by You Y Ly, 2015, 8mn, Khmer version with English subtitles

Phal Srey is living with her children in a temple in Phnom Penh. Her husband, who is working in the province, hardly sends her money. Since she could not study when she was young, her commitment is to send her children to school every day. In order to make it possible, she has been selling cakes on the street for 20 years. She works all day long and earns barely enough to buy some food and pay the water and electricity bills. When she cannot sell out all her cakes, she gives them to the neighbors for free.
