In Siem Reap, on the restoration site of Ba Phuong, a team of workers assemble the scattered stones of ancient bas-reliefs. Gradually, the whole history of ancient Khmers surfaces under our eyes. A young street vendor wonders about his future. He dreams of becoming a guide but is too poor to go to school. A former peasant who became a construction worker feels cut off from his earth. Many other destinies intertwine and join to become a story, like the stones from past and present are mixed. A sense of humor helps to convey the anguish of daily survival, while the ancient art helps to find reasons for living.
