    After the unrest that was carried to the world by street-shot cell phone images, the Burmese dictatorship pledged 'free' elections in 2010. Undercover, Quebec filmmakers Pierre Mignault and Hélène Magny clandestinely were able to enter one of Burma's most dangerous zones, penetrating into the heart of the Karen Nation, where civil war has been waging for 60 years. Breaking the Silence: Inside Burma's Resistance demonstrates the strength of the Burmese people's resistance and takes us deep into the country, disclosing the secret networks of militants fighting along the Thai border.
