Myanmar: Poppyland

In this documentary, Liam Cochrane travels to the source of most of Australia's heroin-the vast opium fields of Myanmar, where poppy production has more than doubled in a decade. He interviews local farmers dependent on the crop for survival; talks to a church pastor running a heroin rehab program in Nant Phar Kar, a town threatened by addiction; and visits a Shan village implementing a U.N. program to replace poppy fields with coffee. While the government claims to be cracking down, the opium trade has funded both sides of 60 year civil war. What will it take to break Myanmar's opium habit and achieve peace?
