Abstract:

On the front line of conflict deep inside Burma, this documentary follows ethnic relief workers as they aid internally displaced people suffering under the Burma Army. Although many in the outside world condemn the country's military government, few are aware that over one million Karen villagers fight to stay alive inside the country's borders. Blauer illegally crosses the border several times to help local relief workers bring medicine and material aid to those displaced by the Burmese Army. In his journeys, he meets a nurse devoted to assisting escapees following the death of her parents and a pastor/cameraman who documents human rights abuses.
