About

Life in Washington DC is getting back to normal after the trauma of September 11, 2001 (9/11). George W. Bush is President and Hillary Clinton, former First Lady and now Senator for New York, already has her eye on higher things. One morning Su Soeung, who first came to the US as a child refugee from Cambodia and the horrors of Pol Pot, receives a job offer from SAVE, an international charity specializing in relief work in Cambodia. This is the beginning of an extraordinary train of events. Su's efforts to discover the fate of her father, Hong Soeung, who 'disappeared' during Cambodia's Pol Pot nightmare, seem to be inextricably intertwined with politics at the highest level. Just how much did the US know about Pol Pot and his band of 'brothers'? What deals were done between Washington and Beijing? And, in the end, was Su Soeung just a puppet of forces beyond her control?
