Synopsis

This is the story of a woman reporter from Thailand whose coverage of the Rohingya people began in early 2009 after the Western media reported that the Thai navy was putting illegal Muslim Rohingya refugees aboard boats with no engines and leaving them on the high seas to fend for themselves. The Thai reporter becomes a backpacking journalist, travelling to different places to meet Rohingya immigrants of different ages in a bid to find out why they decided to leave their motherland. She also visits a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh.
