“Behind the Fence” appears to be contained within the 5×5 sq. mile camp that imprisons the Rohingya muslim minority in Myanmar, and investigates the extremist Buddhists who propagate virulent anti-Muslim sentiment all through the nation.

Behind the Fence profiles Abul, a husband who does the whole thing he can to aim to help his sick partner, Barbulu, a twelve-year-old boy whose future is diminished on account of constraints of dwelling on this open air jail, and U Wirathu, the Buddhist chief of the 969 movement who stokes public assist for restrictive authorized tips which have rendered the Rohingya stateless of their very personal land.
