Set during Thailand’s economic boom, an ambitious advertising executive meets a male hustler who struggles at the bottom rung of society. Their differences in class, social status and intellectual interest couldn’t be wider, and the film casts a long look at Thai society at a time when the trauma of the past still lingers amidst the promise of a brighter future. The film stars two of Thailand’s best-known actors in the 1980s Likhit Akemongkol and Sinjai Plengpanich.
