Tremble Like a Flower
Status Script Development / Financing.
In a wasteland close to a school in a rural district in northern Isan, Kaew, a teenage girl about to turn 17, sneaks out of school to meet Dang, a boy of similar age to Kaew and a high school dropout. He brings her along with his two other best friends (also dropouts) to secluded places to use heroin. She seems to enjoy her time with this group of social misfits. As she grows closer to Dang, who already has a girlfriend, she feels even more troubled by the status of their relationship. Around the same time, she has been ignoring Bhumi, a senior at school who has been flirting with her for some time. Although Bhumi knows about her secret relationship with Dang, he is persistent with her. When she discovers that Bhumi is the nephew of a colonel, she despises him even more for it and intentionally rejects his advances but this does cause him to give up.
