This film is narrated by a 78 year old Lahu elder called Cago – the Lahu are ‘Hill Tribe’ people like the Karen or the Akka.
When he was a young man Cago was forced to flee from his village. That was in 1957. He now lives in Thailand where he has been granted Thai citizenship. But, as he explains, his soul remains in Burma, and he longs to return to his homeland before he dies. He listens to Burmese radio broadcasts and other media daily, and is well informed about the political situation in his homeland.
