Our music industry has taken a dramatic leap in the past few years, but what about our movie industry? Just this month the movie "Khor Pieng Huk" was premiered in Laos and had great reviews. Now comes another movie called "Mork Xi Wid" due to be released at the end of 2010. The film is a story about a couples dream of helping people with disabilities but a tragedy comes up when the main hero finds out that he has become ill with AIDS.
