Former Khmer Rouge Commander Touj Soeurly and former enemy Chhem Sip now work together to build Veal Thom, a cooperative village of landmine-disabled soldiers and families.
In 1974 former Khmer Rouge Commander Touj Soeurly and Chhem Sip were deadly enemies. Sip was imprisoned, tortured, and just barely managed to escape with his life to the US. Now these two former enemies are working together to make possible the community of Veal Thom, a cooperative village composed primarily of soldiers from both sides of the war disabled by landmines, and their families. This film is a testament to the new feeling of cooperation in Cambodia and the courage of the villagers of Veal Thom.
