It is a textbook case of ethnic cleansing according to the United Nations. Rape, pillage, villages bombed and set on fire… The repression the Rohingya minority has suffered from for decades was just taken a step further.

Following the attacks on multiple police stations by young fighters claiming to be part of an armed rebellion, the Burmese military has launched a large scale reprisal operation against villagers now regarded as terrorists. Try as they might, tens of thousands of families attempt to flee the region to take refuge to neighboring Bangladesh. According to the United Nations, 500.000 Rohingyas have already crossed the border.
The director has followed Noor-Mohamed’s family – who has been on the run for eight days. From their crossing of the river Naaf between Burma and Bangladesh to their moving into an improvised “camp” a week later.
