Bombies digs deep into the United States’ secret bombing campaign in Laos starting in 1962, the after-effects of which are still felt today.

In the last three decades more than 12,000 people, many of them children, have been killed or injured by bombies or other unexploded ordnance (weapons). With an estimated 90 million cluster bombs dropped on Laos, many experts consider Laos to be the most heavily ordnance-contaminated country in the world. Bombies relates the untold story of the deadly legacy of unexploded cluster bombs in Laos through the personal experiences of villagers, activists, and others who courageously deal with them on a daily basis.
