Still I Strive tells the story of some of the most talented and inspired child artists on the planet, who just happen to be living at a unique orphanage in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Interspersed throughout the documentary are narrative film sequences featuring the children as actors. By weaving fact with fiction, reality with dreams, it is revealed where these lines ultimately merge by the film’s conclusion.
