Blood Amber

Synopsis

Somewhere in northern Myanmar, there is a forest rich in amber and controlled by the Kachin Independence Army. Most of the inhabitants there make a living by finding amber as it is their only hope to get out of poverty. They work under harsh conditions and rest while fearing the attack from the government army. Life there is despairing, like the darkness at the bottom of the mine.
