Same Same but Different

Same Same but Different

Deutschland 2008/2009, Spielfilm

Inhalt

A journey from the heart of darkness to the heart of lightness: It was just one night after the club. It became tender love. And suddenly a matter of survival.

"Same Same But Different" tells an unusual, modern love story. A young German falls for a Cambodian girl and stays by her side, even though she is HIV positive. Based on the true story of Benjamin Pruefer and Sreykeo Sorvan.
