The Storm Makers

.

At the age of 16, Aya, a young Cambodian peasant, was sold into slavery by a “Storm Maker” – a human trafficker – who promised her a job as a maid in Malaysia. Now back in village, she is dishonoured and traumatised, and just as poor as when she left.
The unveiling of Aya’s fate, intertwined with the testimonies of human traffickers, offers an unsettling view of contemporary Cambodian society. By revealing the cruel exploitation of the rural population, the film raises an unsettling question: what is the price of a young peasant‘s life in Cambodia?
