Silent Land: The Fight for Fair Food

In Cambodia, a small elite is making fast money by buying up arable land. They chase away the farmers living there and lay out sugar plantations, or they leave the plots fallow until the price is right. The young farmer Seng Channeang fights to keep her property and thus contribute to the local food security. She opposes the land grabbers, cooperates with other small farmers and tries to sell her crops. Meanwhile, she hopes her new-born daughter will [one day] study law and fight for the rights of poor farmers.
