About the Production:
"Visiting an IDP camp in Burma prior to the Burmese Embassy seizure, I heard wild stories about God’s Army. While recording recollections of loved ones murdered on video, I stayed in a Karen guerrilla camp meeting many young soldiers. Some were orphans. When the embassy and hospital incidents occurred I could imagine the whole thing - young idealistic faces seeking justice and tragically being betrayed. I was motivated to make this movie after observing the cunning manner in which this story was effectively buried." -- Joe Hill White
