Born from a forced marriage during the Khmer Rouge regime, director Neary Adeline Hay travels back to Cambodia with her father, Khonsaly, to face his former Khmer Rouge persecutors. In Ta Saeng, the detention village that they lived together in as prisoners over forty years before, Khonsaly and the remaining inhabitants recount the workings of the sites that became theatres for the deaths of millions. In a contemplative, artful piece of testimony, Hay and her father produce a personal and poetic treatise on the need to record and reactivate memory and not forget the past, however painful it may be.
