Publisher's Summary

This is Bun Yom’s story of his capture by the Khmer Rouge at fourteen-years-old - and the unmatched suffering, courage, and heroism that ensued.
After three years as a killing-field slave, seventeen-year-old Bun Yom escaped from the Khmer Rouge and became a freedom fighter. Using his wisdom, courage, and infinite compassion, Bun rescued thousands of Cambodian people and soon became the Cambodian Freedom Fighters’ greatest soldier. Tomorrow I’m Dead is the only known first-person account of the freedom fighter’s heroic liberation of slaves from the Khmer Rouge killing fields.
This production concludes with an exclusive interview with the author, which includes untold stories such as Bun’s use of crocodiles to escape enemy gunfire. Also included is an epilogue in the author’s own voice offering a message of encouragement and hope.
Bun Yom arrived in the United States with not one penny, with only the clothes he was wearing, and without knowing a single word of English. Through hard work, he now has his own home, a family, a restaurant, and many friends. It took twenty years before he was ready to write about his years in the killing fields, but for the sake of kids everywhere, he has finally done it.
