August 1992. Savannah, 28 years old, finds himself back in Phnom Penh after four years on Cambodia’s northern front, fighting the Khmer Rouge. Like the rest of his generation, he’s known only war since infancy, camps, hunger and massacres. All he’s got left now is his uncle, Sôn, as the rest of the family was entirely annihilated by Pol Pot’s regime. One evening, at the dance bar where his war buddy Maly is working as bouncer, Savannah falls prey to the charm of the beautiful Srey Poeuv, one of the bar girls, who, from time to time, also serve the desires of the richest patrons. The two young people from a sacrificed generation are soon to be victims to their own passion. Madly in love with Srey Poeuv, Savannah goes back to the ring and kick boxing. He tries to convince the young girl to give up her work as “companion” and to live a “normal life” with him. They make a pact, to try never again to sell their bodies, in any fashion. But it’s already too late in their precarious universe, passion dragging along with it the one who wanted to live toward an ineluctable death, while forcing the one who wanted to die to live with the memory of their love.
