A mesmerising treatise on memory, politics and cinema, set against the backdrop of the 1976 Thammasat University Massacre.

A filmmaker travels to a rural retreat with an author who was an activist in her youth. Hoping to collaborate on a script, the director begins interviewing the writer, building a picture of the circumstances that sparked her political awakening.

“A headspinning tour de force... a dizzying, dazzling work"

“Fascinating... an engrossingly strange, confident leap down the conceptual rabbit hole, and a very accomplished piece of film-making”
