SYNOPSIS: The will to survive overrides the most basic human desires in this uncompromising portrait of two illegal Burmese migrants. The human-traffickers have a well-established route: from Burma into Thailand across the Mekong River at Tchilek, along quiet country roads, passing bribed police checkpoints and into Bangkok, where the migrants are left to their own devices. Lianqing is one of five illegals who travels this route one summer night in 2013; along the way she befriends a fellow migrant called Guo, and their fates become forever intertwined. Once in Thailand, Lianqing struggles, working underground jobs, saving money and tracking down fake identity papers with the hope of making it to Taiwan. But Guo has different ambitions…
