Synopsis

In Burma, it is said that everyone is a poet. But in the lush Southeast Asian country poetry is a means of expression that has been shaped by half a century of dictatorship and an even longer period of foreign oppression. Poet and activist Maung Aung Pwint has served 30 years in prison for his subtle rebellion against the regime. A poetic, loving documentary about a country reinventing itself.

"Seven steps forward, turn around, seven steps back. That's the way poetry's born in a jail cell. Ants are its first listeners."
