Forced to flee from his village in Burma at the age of ten, Nimrod Andrew faced an uncertain future as a refugee. Battling terrible odds he struggled to turn this displacement into opportunity. Compelled by the horrors of Burma and devoted to helping his community, for Nimrod, leaving the past behind isn’t as easy as it may seem….

How Can a Boy tells the story of a young man’s struggle to overcome loss and tell the truth about Burma.

What a success! Congratulations on such a beautiful film. I laughed, cried and felt outrage. Nimrod you are a treasure, Ottawa hit pay dirt by gaining you! Ed and Jane what a powerful film….you did such a great job.” Lucy van Oldenbarneveld, CBC Television
