The documentary, River of Victory, is an unsettling account of the harsh life of a Cambodian family as they struggle with financial woes and often disturbing medical treatments for their child. This glimpse into their lives was captured when three young filmmakers, including Trevor Wright, struck up a conversation with a young mother, Sang Li, who lived at the dump.
