The setting is war-torn Burma, where ethnic minorities struggle to survive in an uncharted jungle while fleeing from the tyrannical Burmese army. Director Lea Rekow undertook a dangerous and secretive journey just so she could film these refugees, and A Long Struggle is the resulting record of their stories.
