Living with his older brother Ek and his aunt in the poor periphery of Bangbok, 11-year-old Oat dreams of a cheeseburger. But when Ek is drafted into the army and his friend Jai gets out of it with a bribe, Oat decides to take matters into his own hands, triggering a series of events that marks him for life, culminating in a game of checkers he finally wins. A story about growing up, life’s certainties and decisions that can haunt you for the rest of your life.
