Tales of men with black uniforms and red foulards, who murdered wielding batons. Today Cambodian kids utter the history of their country as if it was an ancient legend. They were born after the Vietnamese occupation, often abandoned or neglected by parents: the war has weakened family ties. Saha is a young “tourist guide”; he learnt English while speaking with tourists, telling them about Phnom Sampeu, the killing caves. In this place, hundreds of people were murdered and their bodies thrown away. A small charnel-house is the silent witness to humanity’s woe.
