ABOUT THE FILM (Synopsis) :
This educational documentary film tells two tragic stories of two breast cancer victims, one of which had lost her life while the other one is still fighting the battle.
These two women represent the 70 percent of Cambodian breast cancer victims, who did not seek for treatment until their cancer reached the later stage due to the limited understanding of the disease, economic constraint, and the insufficient amount of resources available to support the victims.
The film also informatively discusses about what breast cancer is, what are the causes, the challenges to improving this area, and supporting resources available in Cambodia through the interviews with experts on this field who represent different health institutions.
The film ends with the new hope for breast cancer victims as there is a hospital for women, founded by a breast cancer survivor, known as Nokor Tep Hospital being built to support women with cancer.
