Reviews the legacy of the British colonial system, the reign of General Ne Win, leaders' human rights abuses, and the Burmese people's loyalty to their leader, Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. The Burmese people remain serene and steadfast despite widespread abuse, and Burmese Buddhism is introduced by visiting temples and pagodas in the plains of Pagan, the reclining Buddha at the Shwedagon Pagoda, and the Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay. Cultural excursions include the floating gardens of Inle Lake, a visit with the Padaung women who wear long coils of traditional neck rings, and trips through the Irrawaddy River system. NOTE: Shows some war violence.
