Suon Rottana is a teenage Khmer Rouge rebel, Cambodian Army soldier, prisoner of war, and has an amputated limb from stepping on a land mine. Suon becomes a wounded man who seeks reconciliation with everything around him. The forced reflection that his circumstance imposes leads him to share his story with the viewer, working as a tour guide in several war memorial museums. Broken Courage is a film about memory, history and reconciliation. This personal journey will remind us all what it means to find the way back home.
