Middle of the Road

Middle of the Road


A rare glimpse into the life of one of Myanmar’s more privileged teenagers. As he guides his father’s comfortable saloon car around the dimly lit streets of Yangon by night, high school graduate Htet Linn Aung guardedly but tellingly shares his thoughts on friendship, his artistic ambitions and his fear of being poor.
