Dr. Tine Yee answered and highlighted real situations in Burma including Education System breakdown under the ruler of military regime. She also expressed how mothers were broken and tormented from witnessing their children gunned down in front of their eyes, and that this film depicts the real-moment she (as a mother) went through in 1998.
