In Cambodia’s Northern Prey Lang forest, one of the last remaining evergreen forest in Southeast Asia, a community is organizing itself to preserve its roots, traditions, and protect the land to which it belongs.
Fighting formidable foes such as climate change and deforestation, the community has learnt resilience and compassion.
This is the story of forgotten people, connected to each other by nothing less a forest in distress.
This is also the story of Cambodia’s fate and the legacy it will pass on future generations.
