How two women fell in love, survived the Khmer Rouge and transformed a community

Two women, Soth Yun and Sem Eang, met and fell in love in one of the Khmer Rouge regime’s notorious forced labor units. After the Khmer era, during which two million Cambodians were killed, they decided to live together in the province of Takeo, despite the disapproval of their families and the local community. As Cambodia inches towards acceptance of LGBT people, Yun and Eang, who are now middle-aged and raising several of their nephews and nieces, want to get married.
