Forced to flee at age ten from his village in Burma, Nimrod Andrew faced an uncertain future as a refugee. Battling terrible odds he struggled to turn his displacement into opportunity. Compelled by the horrors of Burma and devoted to helping his community, for Nimrod, leaving the past behind isn't as easy as it may seem. The film tells the story of this young man's struggle to overcome loss and tell the truth about Burma.
What a success! Congratulations on such a beautiful film. I laughed, cried and felt outrage. Nimrod you are a treasure, Ottawa hit pay dirt by gaining you! Ed and Jane what a powerful film....you did such a great job.

Powerful, incredible footage. Difficult to watch, but so very important for the world to see. Judy Rand, Photographer
How I see the children from Burma that I teach, will never be the same. Now that I understand their past, I can better help prepare them for the future.
