From the majestic site of Angkor Wat to the world stage, San Kim Sean, an elderly Master who survived the brutal Khmer red regime, struggles to revive Cambodia’s traditional martial art of Bokator, win an international competition and preserve it in the nation’s youth. A powerful story of a nation like Cambodia, through a unique look at the claim of cultural identity and national pride that today is rarely seen in films and media.
