He is an orphan and comes from a poor family. His parents died long ago, from AIDS related diseases. He lives with his grandmother and his uncle, and their family. He lives on the top floor of an apartment block, where his family run a textile business, sewing together clothes and ornamental flags from around the world. A dozen young women work in this textile business, and the boy's home space is actually amidst this small factory environment which he shares with them. They eat, work and play together like an extended family or community. Phnom Penh, Cambodia
