Rocket to respectability

Ten year old Ahlo was born as a twin, but his brother did not survive the birth. Ever since then, he has been seen as the source of every misfortune that has befallen his village. But when the villagers are forced to move across Laos in search of a new place to live and happen upon a rocket-building competition, Ahlo sees a chance to redeem himself. Combining underdog drama with humour and a subtle examination of the lasting effects of Laos’ war-torn past, THE ROCKET is a rich and visually stunning audience favourite.
