The Missing Picture is heartbreaking

5 second plot: Filmmaker Rithy Panh uses archival footage and clay figures to tell the story of his childhood in Cambodia when Pol Pot and the Red Khmer destroyed the country and the people living in it.

5 second review: It's devastating to learn about the atrocities committed by these crazy idealists. It's impossible not to feel moved by this very personal tale of a little boy that loses everything. Don't be discouraged by the clay figures. You just have to listen to what they have to say.
