Set against Burma’s long and violent struggle for freedom, a powerful and compelling story of heroism and hope.
“This is a True Story…about a Burmese freedom fighter, a monk and 600 abandoned children. It’s about our journey together against the backdrop of a beautiful and remote lake community in what has been one of the most turbulent and dangerous regions of what is now Myanmar. Like most journeys, I found myself setting off for one destination only to arrive at another. I thought I was writing one story only to discover that there were deeper layers that I hadn’t uncovered yet. I thought I was writing about one man, only to meet another. Each encounter brought me closer to discovering something new about myself. I was beginning to turn the pages on a new and exciting chapter in my own life.”
