(W/A/CA) Tian Veasna
Year of the Rabbit tells the true story of one family's desperate struggle to survive the murderous reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Using firsthand accounts from family members, Tian Veasna shows the reality of life in the work camps, where his family bartered for goods, where children were instructed to spy on their parents, and where reading was proof positive of being a class traitor. Constantly on the edge of annihilation, they realized there was only one choice: escape Cambodia and become refugees.
