Description

Lek Jaipong's family is surrounded by violence, much of it emanating from the background of human trafficking carried out across central Thailand. When she marries David, an Australian engineer from Warrnambool, her life changes forever. But she can never escape the memories. Haunted by her past, Lek eventually makes a choice about her future.

What seemingly starts as a love story of betrayal and sacrifice, soon leads to a deeper understanding of the suffering of Burma's stateless and their fight against persecution.

At times brutal and murderous, this Thai wife is not the person she seems - and certainly not the person her husband thought he knew.
