Sisters Marip Sein Ram and Marip Nin Ram are both studying at a boarding school in Yangon - two thousand kilometres away from their native village of Eitone near Putao in northern Kachin State. The measured tones in which the girls tell their story are in sharp contrast to the traumatic life they led in the dysfunctional family they have now left behind. Theirs is a story of courage and resilience, and the determination to make a new start.
