Jade Miners

Synopsis

In the end of 2012, when the Burmese army waged a war on Kachin Independence Army (KIA), many corporations working with the government on jade mining in the area were forced to stop their operation. Workers from all over the country flocked to the jade mines in Kachin State to dig illegally for jade. They risked their lives for a piece of valuable jade that will transform their lives.
