동화같이 아름다운 황금의 땅 버마에서는 무수한 탑들이 정글까지 이어져 있고 그 끝에는 버마 정부군을 피해온 수십만 명의 국내 난민들이 살고 있다. 작품은 기독교인, 무슬림, 그리고 다른 소수 민족들에 대한 집단 학살과 그들의 투쟁 현장을 비춘다.A picturesque journey through fairytale Burma, the Golden Land of a thousand pagodas that ends in the jungles where hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people live, on the run from the government army. Ruled by a military junta, Burma is regularly condemned by the UNHCHR for severe human rights violations. Yet the much of the world is unaware of the suffering of millions of Burmese civilians. In the shadows of the pagodas is a depiction of the genocide committed against Christians, Muslims, and other ethnic minorities of Burma.
