Crossing Salween is produced through the Irish Film Board ‘Signatures’ Scheme in association with Red Rage Films.


Having survived the massacre of her family, a young girl must make the long journey through the horrors of the Burmese jungle to the Salween River, beyond which lies the freedom of Thailand. But will her late father’s enduring love and promise of a guardian angel be enough to shepherd her across the river where so many have fallen?
