A Thousand Fires is a tale of family, oil, and life cycles in Myanmar’s hand-drilled oil fields. Parents Htwe Tin and Thein Shwe work hard to give their children a better future, their lives governed by a web of karma and astrology. All their hopes are pinned on their youngest son – Zin Ko Aung – and when he leaves home to make his own life, his parents must learn to let their children go.
