Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Thai filmmaker Thanit Jitnukul follows up his historical war drama Bang Rajan with the mythical period film Kunpan: Legend of the Warlord. In an ancient Thailand kingdom, the heroic monk Kaew (Watchara Tangkaprasert) leaves his hometown when the king kills his magical-powered father. He returns to be with Pim (Bongkoo Kongmalai), but she marries Chang (Apichai Nipattahuttapong) and changes her name to Wangtong. Kaew leaves the town again and changes his name to Kunpan, spending some time hanging out with thieves, practicing his magic skills, and sleeping with various women. When he returns, he and Wangtong have a son, Plyarm, who grows into a warrior.
