Golden Triangle

Inside Burmese jungle at Ho Mong, the secret jungle base centre of war lord Khun Sa:s private army, at that time the world's biggest heroin producer. I filmed the young children arriving as new recruits, forced into "army service" for the war lord, but I was expelled after three days in their camp.
