Separated by genocide ... reunited by reality TV. Krishna Guru-Murthy and director Daniel Bogado bring a moving report from Cambodia where a popular TV show is healing a few of the wounds of the Pol Pot years.

Nearly two million Cambodians were murdered under the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, with families deliberately broken up.  The TV show 'It's not a Dream' reunites some of these families. Krishna follows two sisters about to be reunited after 40 years. What they don't know is that the show has also found their mother.
