Panh's observational documentary follows a poor, unnamed Cambodian family over a four-month period as they travel through the country engaging in the back-breaking work of laying fiber optic cables. The man, woman, and their six children are but a few of the hundreds of individuals employed by the French company Alcatel to construct this enormous infrastructural project, one that looks to a national future, but is intimately bound to post-colonial and civil traumas of the past. As the family marches across the nation, digging holes in the ground, it is the unresolved traumas of the nation's recent past that are exhumed and encountered, and Panh's open-eyed gaze that records it.
