This is the story of the residents in a decaying slum in Phnom Penh called the White Building. It is a gritty dark story, full of the true struggles they face - hopelessness, unemployment and poverty. It is the story of the relationship between the honest, hard-working members of society and some on the seedier of the Building's inhabitants - gangsters, drug users, child abusers, pimps and prostitutes. This is a story based on the truth. Because as they say, the truth can often be stranger and more brutal than fiction.
Above all this is a story of hard people with beautiful, warm hearts. They are ready to accept anyone who accepts them. This is the story of the community inside the Building, working together to defend their precious tenement from evil and the ultimate threat. When will the developer come and tear it down? This book was inspired by Josephine Reynolds, without whose help the story would never have been born.
