Vientiane, capital of Lao People's Republic, one of the last remaining communist states on earth. In December 2012, CCTV recordings of the kidnapping of a Laotian community activist by obviously state agents go virally around the world. The EU Parliament, US John Kerry and relatives react with shock and indignation, demanding answers. To this day, the government of Laos denies any participation.
At the pace of a who-done-it thriller, the film documents the life, time and harrowing video evidence of the alleged disappearance of one of Laos's most prominent citizens. Following the film, Shui-Meng Ng, Sombath Somphone's wife, will be present for a discussion. Born in Singapore, she worked for UNICEF in China, East Timor and Laos.
