Cambodia. The time is 1972. At the height of the Pacific War, a US aircraft crashes into Cambodian mountains. The survivor is immediately taken prisoner by the local villagers. But the guy is Black... For the naive, mesmerized young child telling this story, the man's nationality, race and language don't make him an enemy or a stranger, but merely an animal that needs to be taken care of. Rithy Panh brings this story into his native land -The little Cambodian child from the ricefields, who's responsible for guarding the prisoner, is already sucked in by the Khmer Rouge ideology. Across the border, in Vietnam, war is raging and US fighters fly over his country to bomb Vietnam. Will the child be able not to kill the black man - the enemy?
