Although they never declared war on Laos, the Americans dropped the most bombs in the history of armed conflict on this Asian country. This carefully crafted film shows how the country is coping with the sad remnants of the recent past.

During the Vietnam War, the US Air Force dropped a ton of bombs and rockets every day on the positions of Communist insurgents and Vietcong warriors. In the dense jungle, the border was not easy to see, and many bombs also hit the neighbouring, also communist-dominated Laos. Forty years later, the consequences of the war are still apparent and many areas remain dangerous. Special women's squadrons with metal detectors dismantle unexploded ordnance one by one in fields and cities. The metal bombs are ubiquitous; people use them to build fences, recast them into items for daily use, or sell them to the ever-growing tourist industry.
