No Boys Land
Jai Sang Lod, a 21 year old boy from the Shan State dreams of having a normal life, but being a refugee and living in Doi Kor Wan Hill at the border of Myanmar and Thailand has put certain restrictions for his future. In this stateless territory, every Shan Refugee has to undergo training for a life time of military service. This is enforced by the Shan State Army (SSA) that controls and protects the territory in order to achieve the Shan liberation from the Myanmar government. His plan to live in Chiang Mai to follow his older brother has shattered after the passing of his mother and being an undocumented person puts him in greater risks in the city. His only option is to submit his life to the SSA without knowing if there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
