    That’s from Preap …
    That’s from Preap Savath and Pich Saophea, “You Better Not Come Home,” probably the biggest hit in Cambodia in 2005. Pich Saophea is the one singing in that short clip in the opening credits. Just do a search on “you better not come home preap” on YouTube and you can watch the whole music video.

    The explosion was a different plane, not the one that the baby survived, I added it in–there’s no footage of that one crashing. However, it still was a horrible crash and everyone died except him, so it is quite amazing that he survived…as the Khmer saying goes, “chiiwit min ah, min slap”
