In the 1970s the government of South Korea spurred a rural economic revolution which eventually lead to their success as a leading economic power in Asia. The program largely responsible for this turnaround was the “New Village Movement” (Saemaul Undong). The United Nations Economic and Social Commision for Asia Pacific experimented with this model in Cambodia, whose successes are documented in this film.
