Today, they are twenty-five years old. They have finished their studies or have started to work. As children, in order to survive, they were scavengers in open garbage dump in Phnom-Penh, Cambodia.

 

That is where Christian and Marie-France, a French couple, met them over twenty years ago and began their inexhaustible fight to pull these children out of their living hell.

To date, they have given more than 10,000 children access to education, and helped them build futures.

This film is the story of an extraordinary human adventure....
