Director Skye Fitzgerald tells the story of Cambodian villagers who seek out and dismantle war munitions so they can sell the scrap metal, and feed their families. From 1968 to 1973, approximately 20 million bombs, cluster munitions, and landmines were scattered across Cambodia. Over three decades later, unexploded ordnance still litters the landscape. In order to clear the soil for farming, farmers must first dismantle the volatile weapons of war. It's a dangerous job, but for families with no income, a necessary one in order to survive.
