John Boorman, director of Deliverance, Hope and Glory and The Emerald Forest, guides another gripping tale of survival and personal transformation, this one based on true-life events. When Dr. Laura Bowman (Medium's Patricia Arquette) arrives in Burma (now Myanmar) shortly after a devastating family tragedy, she is swept up in more sorrow: the government's 1988 crackdown on the rising pro-democracy movement. Trapped by the turbulence around her and hampered from leaving with her fellow travelers due to a lost passport, she is compelled to flee into the jungle countryside toward safety in Thailand. It's a journey of terror and hope for those in flight. For Laura, it's also one of discovery. By aiding others, she finds her own redemption from pain.
