From experimental Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul comes this unconventional romance that incorporates mystical and folkloric elements. While on duty as a forest ranger, soldier Keng (Banlop Lomnoi) meets and falls for a country boy named Tong (Sakda Kaewbuadee). When the young man suddenly disappears, Keng ventures deep into the jungle to find him ... amid rumors that the missing Tong may in fact be a menacing, shape-shifting beast.
