Nuhm is a construction foreman working in Bangkok, but suddenly finds himself out of a job. He decides to go back to his hometown in Khon Kaen to attend his friend’s wedding during the Thai New Year. There, he runs into Joy, a woman from his high school whom he used to have a crush on, and they exchange phone numbers. Suddenly, the film turns in another direction, and we learn that the film is a semi-autobiography of the director’s life. From this point on, the film becomes the voyage of a young man into the labyrinths of the real and the imagined, the documentary and the fiction, the past and the present – and not only of his self but also of the Thai society at large.
