This documentary examines the evolution of dissent in Cambodia and the efforts to control the growth of cyber-democracy by an entrenched and corrupt government.  Cambodia is a battleground for the control of information.  The internet has played an increasing role in the democracy movement in this country.  The reality and response of people impacted by issues such as land grabbing, poor wages and the overall suppression of free speech and assembly are documented on mobile phones and posted on the internet.
