    At Aung San Suu Kyi's honorary doctorate ceremony in Oxford 2012, she encouraged students to visit her country.

    Organised by the Oxford University Student Union, nine people were selected to be the UK's first student delegation in Burma, spending 13 days in 2013. Whilst touring the country, the delegation met with different sectors of industry and were touched by the candidness and determination of those fighting for social change.

    This documentary captures the transitional social landscape that would lead to Aung San Suu Kyi's landslide election victory in 2015 and towards her official appointment to power in 2016.
