Ma, I am going to goand get us some corn tonight.
Ma, its so easy! I never knew stealing corn could be so easy!
How dare you steal from the Angkar!
Kim sneaks out at nigh to steal corn from the fields that are not being supervised.
You three have to leave and go far away.
Because Kim steals corn he is able to feed his family.
Ma doesn't want me around anymore.
Kim gets caught by the Khmer Rouge soldiers alive, and never steals corn after this event.
Ma tells Kim. Chou, and Loung that they need to leave home because they are "too much work" for her.
Kim goes off by himself, as Ma had instructed, but Chou and Loung refuse to separate.
Chou and Loung come across a child labor camp and Met Bong allows them to stay. Loung is bullied by a girl and attacks her for calling her a "Chinese-Youn." Loung's punishment for this is watering all the gardens. She is not allowed to go to sleep until she is finished.
