The Tongue Of Water (អណ្តាតទឹក)
Almost everything is gone for Neang: her relationship, her son, nature, and her entire village, ever since the construction of a hydropower dam has began on a Mekong river’s branch. Despite the pain, she maintains her integrity towards her ancestors and love for nature, alongside her struggle to remain still in the indigenous land.
