Synopsis

Ton, a Bangkok architect comes to the rural community of Takua Pa in South Thailand, in order to supervise rebuilding work in the wake of the devastation caused by the 2004 tsunami. He chooses to stay in a small, rundown hotel owned by the shy Thai-Chinese Na who is bringing up her gangster brother's child. The two tentatively embark on a relationship, but Na's brother Wit does not take kindly to the news... Tension and suspense abound as we witness the development of their passion against the backdrop of a wounded landscape and a bruised population.

Critics

open_quote A beautifully made, superbly acted and emotionally powerful drama that's well worth seeking out. close_quote Matthew Turner, Viewlondon


open_quote This delicate, delightful and nearly note-perfect debut feature from young Thai director Aditya Assarat offers more evidence of the tremendous film renaissance underway in East Asia... an irresistible picture, engaging from its first shot to its last. close_quote Andrew O’hehir, Salon.com
