    Highly Recommended

    This movie is about how in 1961 the U.S.A dropped 3 Million tons of bombs on Laos and this man made a movie explaning what hade happend. This went on until 1973 and many lives were lost. My escape was tromatizing and I was very worried. My three uncles fought in the war two were generals and the other was an army pilot while I was escaping I was worried about my family all three of my uncles got thrown in jail because they worked with the old regime they got torcherd because the communist did not like them so if you want you can watch it and understand these things. THANK YOU, Boonnhong Korasack.
