You can't go home again.
Sanmei is a young woman who has left her native Myanmar to endure an arranged marriage in China. Returning to her hometown, she takes a job as a drug runner and persuades a naive young man to become her driver. In his most accomplished work to date, young Myanmar-born, Taiwan-based director Midi Z uses a spare, subtle and powerful visual style to portray the economic and moral crisis that affects the young people of his native land.
