The film focuses on the Karaoke Girl – real-life person and dramatised one in a single character: Sa Sittijun, a sex worker in Bangkok. She grew up in a village in the countryside and at the age of 15 was sent to work in the big city.

Saw this in a cinema in Siam Square with English subtitling. Nice fiction-documentary mix, with plenty of stunning visuals, but it doesn't take the genre in a new direction. Nor does it take Thai cinema to places it hasn't been before.
