Summary
"In Bomb Harvest, the discovery of yet another child victim brings Australian bomb disposal specialist Laith Stevens to a small village in Laos in South East Asia to diffuse the bomb responsible, only to discover that another live aircraft bomb is lodged spectacularly in a rice paddy behind the children's school. But Laith is forced to leave the live bomb unattended so he can train up young Lao technicians to become "Big Bomb" qualified. Without their manpower, the bombs can't be taken care of. Time is short, as Laith is fearful that the bombs will automatically detonate or the foraging children will trigger it before he gets back, and he has to quickly take the fledgling bomb disposal technicians through a course where any mistakes can prove fatal. The film shifts between the high tension of dealing with live bombs - which could turn them all into 'pink mist' in an instant - and the camaraderie between the team members who do such a dangerous job. We also meet some of the elders and surviving victims of war - people who experienced an illegal air war which delivered tonnes of bombs to their country. Bomb Harvest explores how three generations of people, in a largely forgotten country, have been left to deal with the mess of an air war long after it is over"--website
