‘Myanmar – a country of rich heritage, culture, and strife. A county where its independence was fought for tooth and nail, and maintenance hangs on a very thin line. This series features one woman’s struggle for Myanmar’s liberation, one man’s ability to undo the good fight, and the will of its people in defying all odds.’ – Paolo Larioza
