International Premiere

After the 2014 coup d’état in Thailand, 400 citizens associated with political activism were summoned by the Junta, and many more were accused. Writer-activist Wat Wanlayangkool was among those summoned. He decided not to report himself but instead to fly away from the country.

The film is a calm and gentle sequence of gestures, moments and conversations, where time slowly goes by, rain falls, food is cooked, and the same powerful resistance of this man sends light to every corner of this planet.
