In the beginning, a ride with a grocer lady’s car across bumpy country lanes. The director asks the lady for a story. As characters, she chooses a disabled boy and his teacher. During the ride across the country, the story, again and again faded in as a silent movie, is continued by changing narrators, developing great pleasure in spinning tales. Among the narrators: an old woman, a village community, a boxer, a school class. And at the same time, without one noticing it, the picture of the political and social situation in Thailand is being developed.
