A child’s spirit is hard to break. And when children get together, they lift the spirit of an entire village – a floating village in this case. Lovely dreams, truthful grins and believable laughter, it is incredible how the muddy waters of the Mekong can create a paradise for little kids.  This film truly feels for the child, it truly speaks for the child…about his aspirations, his world, his hopes.   Children see heaven even in the most dire of circumstances. Even when they  have to live in utter deprivation – no school, lack of a clean environment, lack of a clear future and the lack of good healthy food.

Down The Stream is a powerful documentary that shows the lives of these very young children who lives in  Mekong River. Their hopes and desires to have a better life and their aspirations about the future would break your heart. This short documentary is enough to bring awareness to the community/government that their is a social and economic issues that is needed to be dealt. A society should realize that the youth is the hope of the future, if we teach them well and guide them, then we could perhaps make this world a better place.
