From a poorly built basement, a girl reveals a fundamental part of her present life. The memory of her painful and frightening springtime reflects a common portrait found in the lives of many young girls in Cambodian society.

Polen Ly was a medical student for five years when he decided to pursue his passion in filmmaking in 2012. Being a young and independent filmmaker teaches him to understand how powerful a moving picture can be. He believes film is a medium to express true feelings of a human being and that filmmakers also can play a role in peacemaking.
