Based on the memoir by Loung Ung, this film by director Angelina Jolie explores the impact of the Cambodian genocide (from April 1975 to January 1973) on children after the Cambodian Civil War (1967–75) and during the Cambodian-Vietnamese War (1978–89). Ung's family flees Phnom Penh after the Americans evacuate and the Khmer Rouge takes power. She becomes an orphaned refugee and later child soldier, unwittingly inflicting violence on other children by planting land mines in the countryside.
