Synopsis

Daw Ni Lang is a Chin national who lives in Yangon with husband and youngest son. She bustles around her home, laughs with friends at a local cafe and fondly remembers her early married life. Yet underneath her cheerful demeanour lies a deep sense of loss at having had to leave her homeland and part from four of her five children.

How much time left before the festival starts?
