Sypnopsis

In a small farming town, a middle-aged man rides his motorcycle through the silent landscape. He is a ghost who has returned to walk the footsteps of his youth. His name is Wit and he died three days ago. Soon, the silence gives way to the sound of a young womans laughter. Her name is Koi and she is all of twenty years old. It is now the past and this memory recalls the days when Wit fell in love with his future wife. He has brought her home to meet his parents and though she is at first wary of rural life, she soon accepts that this will be her future with the man that she loves. Finally, the past dissipates and we are back in the present with Koi, now a middle-aged woman. With two young children and her husband gone, she must find the strength to continue on.


LOGLINE

If the earth itself may face demise
My love will remain unwavering.
If I am not reborn of this earth
May I recognize our love unchanged

 

 

Director Statement

 

 

I wanted the film to be about this memory of my father and our family. The film will be separated into three parts tied together by the concept of death. The first part is inspired by the Thai belief that the spirit of the dead will return after three days to walk the footsteps of the place it cherished. The second part is the recreation of the story my mother always told me when she missed my father. It is about the time when they met and fell in love. The third part is about the daily life of our family in the days following my fathers death when we felt his spirit was still with us. In this film, the three parts will be connected by darkness as a metaphor for the death of a loved one that will stay with us forever.
