The portrait of a country emerging from years of dictatorship told through Burmese poetry. The film centres on the story of a famous dissident poet, Maung Aung Pwint, who has spent many years behind bars for his political activism. Today he is yearning for his son, who lives in political exile in Finland, and his long-awaited return home after twenty years.
