Seven Days In Burma

SYNOPSIS: Burma. The Golden land; the land of mystery. A fascinating country because of its unique blend of ancient Buddhism, English colonialism, and socialism. The Burmese government is very restrictive in admitting foreign media into the country. Seven Days is the maximum period alllowed to foreign tourists. Renee makes a direct journey into the past, visiting medieval Pagan, one of the architectural wonders of Asia. By following a typical burmese farmer, we get a glimpse of daily life in Burma.
