About this submission

A casino worker, Neath (20s, female) and railway station worker, Roth (20s, female) visit one of the big hills in Sihanoukville downtown to recall their memories. During the trip, they undergo feelings of unfamiliar environment. They can’t recognize the place anymore while the whole national park is changing into a huge casino in the near future.
