Aya is a former slave. At the age of 16, the young Cambodian peasant was sold to work as a maid in Malaysia. There, she was exploited during two years without receiving any salary. She was beaten and abused. Then she returned to her village - just as poor as before leaving - and brought back a child of rape. Dishonored and traumatized, what is left of her humanity? The film traces modern-day slavery in Cambodia by disclosing the fate of this young woman and following, in parallel, the daily lives of two human traffickers, a local recruiter and the head of an agency. Cambodian people call these traffickers Mey Kechol: The Storm Makers.
