Seventeen reporters for the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) are incarcerated in prisons across Burma. Some are serving sentences of 27 years, arbitrarily jailed for the so-called crime of exposing the truth about the regime. Their work has included the documenting of scorched-earth tactics against ethnic minorities, the murdering of monks by Burmese troops, and the ineptitude of the regime following cyclone Nargis in 2008. This film gives a glipse into life as a VJ inside Burma. The risks, the incentives, and the punishments.
