In Laos: The Repercussions of War, Gabija Safranavicus and Saavan Sagar embark on a personal journey to uncover the history and impact of the Secret War on Laos. Their narrative uses the seven stages of death as a metaphor for the process that individuals, both Laotians and U.S. citizens, must go through to transform this untenable situation. The final stage – a call to action.
