City of Jade

Synopsis

Time seems to have frozen in the war-torn Kachin State of Myanmar, while waves of poor workers flock to the area to dig for jade, dreaming of getting rich overnight. The director tries to portray his eldest brother in this documentary and find out why he became a drug addict and abandoned his family. It is a film that depicts how people struggle for survival in the darkest corners of Myanmar.
