This man is finally home in Phnom Penh, after spending years abroad. He was back, longing and yearning for closure. Time and change swept over a familiar landscape, but the scars of tragedy remained.

He asked to go to the old part of the city where he spent his childhood against the advice of his fellow countrymen. It was a place of pain and misery, but he wanted to see the ruins with his own eyes.

It was a long walk into a forgotten history. He had lived with hate & withheld forgiveness.
