"Don't Fence Me In: Major Mary and the Karen Refugees from Burma" is the compelling story of the Karen refugees from Burma. The film chronicles the life of 70-year-old freedom fighter Major Mary On and her people's struggle for self-determination.

Major Mary's charismatic storytelling is accompanied by rare, clandestine footage smuggled out of the refugee camps along the border between Burma and Thailand. The film reveals the Karen refugees' spirit and determination to survive as political and historical forces conspire against them.
