The Road to Mandalay Trailer (2016)
Trailer for The Road to Mandalay, which screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
In the back of a pickup truck transporting him across the Thai–Burma border, Guo falls in love with fellow emigrant Lianqing. Their destination is Bangkok, an illusory paradise of opportunity, so distant and different from their impoverished rural homes. But a city like Bangkok cares little for the people trying to survive there, and as frustrations mount and the authorities close in, both Guo and Lianqing will be forced into ever more impossible positions.
