Briefly about the film:
The documentary "Three Jewels" takes us to Buddhist Cambodia to tell us the stories of three women from different generations. They come from the same village and their common passion is traditional singing but fate has treated them differently.
The main hero Srey Oun is 35 years old, single and given up her dream of going to the capital to study traditional music - in order to help her parents cope with hard work in the country.
25-year-old Srey Pov on the other hand has got everything she ever dreamed of - she is a famous singer and has her own business in the capital Phnom Penh. She is able to support her family without any concerns.
Blind bard Koeut Ran who survived the Khmer Rouge genocide has dedicated her life to teaching dharma song and now can proudly see her former students spreading ancient knowledge.
