SYNOPSIS


Death often comes unexpectedly–what happens the day before is usually ordinary: all the little things that make life worth living. In Bangkok, friends celebrate their graduation, siblings meet again, a couple separates, an actress is waiting to be called on set…  A sweet, melancholic and philosophical reflection on the fate and the ephemerality of life.

Kematian sering datang tanpa diduga—apa yang terjadi sehari sebelumnya biasanya biasa saja: semua hal-hal kecil yang membuat hidup ini layak dijalani. Di Bangkok, teman-teman merayakan kelulusan mereka, saudara-saudara bertemu kembali, sepasang suami istri berpisah, seorang aktris sedang menunggu untuk dipanggil di lokasi syuting. Sebuah refleksi kehidupan yang manis, melankolis dan filosofis akan takdir serta kehidupan yang sementara.
