Miss Nikki and the Tiger Girls


Born out of an unholy alliance between Miss Nikki, an artistic and ambitious Australian free spirit, and Peter Thein, an unscrupulous Burmese entrepreneur out to make a buck, the story of the Tiger Girls and their journey towards self-expression is an uplifting look at Girl Power against all odds. Using songs written by the girls to progress the narrative, their search for freedom of expression mirrors the tentative steps their country is taking to do the same thing.
