Cartoonist Delisle accompanies his doctor wife to Burma, where he spends a year exploring and attempting to understand its people and culture. Through a serious of loosely chronological vignettes, we see Burma through his eyes. It is a land of stark contradictions: oppression and totalitarianism, beauty and deep spirituality, technological progress and stagnation. It will make you angry, but also make you laugh and smile.
