Thirteen year old Nhom (13) lost his leg, like
the many children in Cambodia who were
maimed by old land mines, faulty weapons
and unexploded bombs…
Nhom’s parents died and he is subsequently
raised by his aunt. In order to carve out some
kind of future for himself he has to leave
his younger brother and aunt to get an
education at an orphanage in the big city.
Nhom battles loneliness and shame about
his handicap. He befriends another boy who
lost his leg, as they share their experiences.
