The Apprentice Singer

A sixteen-year-old boy in Southern Laos dreams of becoming a Mo Lam singer. But in order to support his family, he must split his time between the farm and his Mo Lam troupe. This film depicts a day in the life of a Lao boy who balances his passion for singing and his obligation to his family.
