Summary
This journey begins with a prediction of the future by a laughing monk, and ends at the Thai border after traveling through Cambodia. On the train, travelers ride in hammocks or on the roof of the train carriages and share their life stories. Behind the smiles are the scars of the recent past when one-quarter of Cambodians were killed, and the country was completely closed off from the world during the Pol Pot regime. Train riders discuss the art of daily survival and the difficult task of coming to terms with the past.
