Description

This film follows the activities of the Karen guerrillas to fight the Slorc army in Burma. The development of offshore oil resources by transnational companies has led to the construction of a pipeline through Karen territory to Thailand. The Karen accuse Slorc forces of burning villages and killing citizens who live in the path of this pipeline. The Karen fight back by disrupting pipeline construction.
