A New Family

Director: Simone Manetti

Khmer with English subtitles

Chantrea is banned from home by her sons when they discover she has HIV. She accepts her exile, even though supporting her family was the reason she was working as a prostitute. She starts collecting litter to survive, and meets Shrey – an abandoned and lonely girl working as a prostitute to support her little children – who sees Chantrea as a kindred spirit and asks her to become her mother. Two lonely Cambodian women get together and create a new family, supporting each other, loving each other.
