Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Love sends a country-born city boy on a surreal search through the streets of modern-day Bangkok in Tears of the Black Tiger director Wisit Sasanatieng's adaptation of wife Koynuch's novel. Despite his grandmother's repeated warnings that he will grow a tail if he moves to the city, country bumpkin Pod (Mahasmut Bunyaraksh) sets his sights on Bangkok and soon lands an assembly-line job. When a factory mishap results in the loss of a finger and Pod opts instead for a job as a security guard, the city-stricken young man soon makes the acquaintance of obsessive/compulsive maid Jin (Sanftong Ket-U-Tong). When Jin is unreceptive to the lovelorn city newcomer's awkward advances, Pod sets out on an enchanting journey through the neon-soaked jungle of Bangkok in hopes of winning the heart of the oblivious object of his affection.
