Seven disheveled, emaciated men squat wearily on their heels. Their eyes, sunken in drawn faces, stare at the ground. Intent upon forgetting their ordeals, they offer as few subdued words as possible to the man who is questioning them. Yes, they know exactly how long they served the soldiers of Myanmar's State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC). One month and 13 days. Yes, they were abducted from their village in the Shan state, far to the north, against their will.

U Kyaw Win squints through the road's billowing dust and utters a loud moan--"MMMMMMM!"--into a cloth he holds over his mouth and nose. He braces himself in the back of a pickup truck as it careens sharply down a steep embankment and jounces, for the umpteenth time, across another wide stream. "This is the same stream," he yells incredulously. "We cross it 30 times."

The man who has a death grip on the wooden gunwales of a long-tail boat roaring up the Moei River between Thailand and Myanmar seems a marvel of inconsistencies. One moment, he will bark at his wife or daughter, "Don't ask stupid questions!" The next, he will plant a kiss on his wife's cheek in thanks for bringing his 28-year-old daughter, Dewi, into the world. He is vain enough to pay to have his graying hair tinted so artfully that it is difficult to spot the dye job.
