An American war correspondent, Tony Collins, and a former Khmer Rouge child soldier, Sam Rith, reunite after nearly thirty years. Tony helped the world-weary 15-year-old Sam start a new life in the United States.
Sam Rith arrived in America, sponsored by Christian couple. But Sam took more than a few wrong turns and ended up spending most of his youth locked up in an American prison before being deported back to Cambodia.
Back again in Cambodia and totally without family and friends, Sam found ways to do what he had always done best—survive. Reconnecting with ‘old friends’—Tony Collins and the Khmer Rouge cadre who’d made him eat a human heart—Sam opened a new chapter of his life working as a translator at the war crime tribunal. He translated the old horrors of wars, truths and lies for the international press.
Reunion tells an unsentimental, powerfully evocative story of friendship, desperation, hope and deception that are part of life. A memorable reunion of two men seeking redemption and finding that the past never dies. In post-Khmer Rouge Cambodia, Reunion explores friendship and survival, and how peace and justice remain unfinished business.
