Phsong Preng (The Adventure) tells the moving and exciting story of a young Cambodian boy who leaves his hometown in search of a better life.
He flees his home, where he is abused by his mother, and meets new unusual friends from a “medicine show” waiting for a taxi. When the “taxi” arrives, they all travel to Phnom Penh. There they get to experience the dark side of life, before our hero ends up beaten and robbed by a gang of thugs finally ending up in hospital.
He is saved by a chance meeting with a band of smart street urchins, who take him in as one of their own, building his confidence and helping him to hold his head high. Bolstered by his adventures, he finally decides he is ready to return home.
Phsong Preng is a modern Cambodian tale mixing high level theatre, music, dance, acrobatics and juggling, which carries you on an emotional and exciting journey through today’s Cambodia.
