"A must-see film for anyone who wants to understand Burma today. Britain & Burma have an amazing shared history, and this film tells it with a subtlety & humour that will take you by surprise.”
Levison Wood - filmmaker, author and explorer, star of Channel 4’s 'Walking the Nile’
In 1885 the British army invaded Burma and deposed its King. He died in exile, ending a thousand years of monarchy. The royal family vanished, and the country was plunged into war and the longest military dictatorship of modern times. But after a century of silence they are back, and they’re on a journey to bring the family - past and present - back together. Filmed through three years of seismic change in Burma, this is the story of a family and a country emerging from the darkness.
