In the royal palace of Cambodia, a dancer raises a boy like he was one of her own. Decades later, under the force of the Khmer Rouge, she discovers that her foster son is none other than Pol Pot. Enrique Sánchez Lansch tells the thrilling story of this horrible culture war combining choreographies with never seen archive material and interviews with eywitnesses.
