The story follows an ivory smuggler, a crooked policeman, and Narith, a young construction worker running away into the night. Inspired by the rapid evolution of Sihanoukville, a fishing village turned into the next Macao of South East Asia as a result of Chinese investment, Aniccam (Khmer for ‘impermanence’) straddles the tension between cultural alienation and belonging, and the muddiness of individual betterment in a climate of economic colonialism.
