Synopsis

Poetry is immensely popular in Burma/Myanmar, a country emerging from years of dictatorship and isolation. In the past, poetry was a way to endure and resist tyranny. Today, there are more online poets than bloggers. The stories and poems in Burma Storybook circle around Maung Aung Pwint – the country’s most famous dissident poet alive today - as he waits for his long-lost son to return home from exile. His family symbolizes resistance and grace, an answer to the poet’s question “how can our hearts possibly be healed?”
