Prevention Drama - According to the Akha tradition, the birth of twins bodes extreme ill fortune. Thus, in the past, twins were killed at birth. Bugeu and Buga are twins born in the Akha culture. To circumvent the tradition, the girls are separated at birth. Buga grows up in the city with her blood-related uncle (Amae) and sells flowers in bars and restaurants. Bugeu grows up in an Akha household in the hills and, when running away from home gets tricked into working in a brothel.
