Welcome to the Doi Boy Club, guys!
[audience whistling, cheering]
Hey, martini, dirty.
- [customer 1] Come on over here, boy.
- [Madame M] Oh.
First up on stage is Oui.
Just look at him, so tall and slim.
And Lert's so hot.
That boy will make you gag all night long.
All right, who's gonna be next? Come on.
Oh, here's Korn.
He's been here for less than two months.
He's brand-new.
Oh, look.
His body is covered in tattoos.
This is Nui.
He's still in college, isn't he?
Sure is.
He wants to make movies someday.
He's so young and energetic.
Are you ready for the exclusive show
we have tonight?
Give it up, people.
Let's hear it for the guy.

Today, do you want to bottom or top?
[inhales deeply]
[ominous music]
[breathes deeply]
[cigarette sizzes]
[Ji] See you.
[Sorn] Good night.
[car door opens, closes]
[engines start]
[engine revving]
[ominous music]
[ominous music intensifies]
[insects chirping]
[dog barking in distance]
[car lock clicks]
[gate clanking]
Som, why haven't you gone to bed?
Didn't the doctor tell you to rest?
I didn't know you'd be out so late.
Where were you all night?
[hostess 1] I think it's your turn to pay.
I paid last time.
[hostess 2] That's not gonna happen.
I'm super broke right now.
[hostess 1] Why are you
always broke, though?
[upbeat music playing]
Mister, how many of you
Are here today?
Mister, can I sit with you?
You are a generous man
You give me a garland
Every time you come
May I ask how many garlands
You are giving me today?
Mister, you came so late today
Mister, I got sleepy waiting for you
Do you believe that I haven't got
A single garland today?
I'm starving to death
Because I was waiting for you
[switch clicks]
- Have a good night, Daddy.
- [car beeps]
Oh, Bee, come with me.
- Oh, I'm sorry, but I can't.
- Bee, come on, please.
Daddy, hey, take me with you tonight.
'Cause Bee is having her time
of the month. That would be icky.
- Oh.
- So why don't you take me instead?
- This way.
- Goodbye, Daddy Meng.
- Bee.
- Night.
See ya!
[car engine starts]
[car engine revving]
Disappointed by your sugar daddy?
Don't be silly, Sorn.
If I wanted to go, I would have.
I wouldn't be riding home with you.
[door closes]
[calm music]
You're much prettier
when you look like this.
No flattery, please.
I want a massage.
Is there anywhere in particular
you want a massage?
- [Bee] Hmm
- [Sorn] Hm?
I have a little gift for you.
- You do?
- Yeah.
For part of your rent.
Well, do you have money?
Yeah, there.
Come lie down on the bed.
[Bee moans]
Today, do you want to bottom or top?
[clock ticking]
[Bhoom groans]
[Bhoom shouts]
[Bee] Sorn.
[Bee] Sorn. Hey, Sorn.
Which one should I wear? This or that?
That. Go with that one.
[Sorn] You trust me?
What? Yeah, I asked for your opinion.
All right.
Tell me. Which one to wear?
The other one's more revealing,
but you look prettier in it.
- [soft grunt]
- [bones crunching]
[upbeat music]
[music stops]
- Body ready?
- Body ready.
- Mind ready?
- Mind ready.
Cash ready?
Um, no.
Ah, you have no choice but to be ready.
Today is a good day.
Take a seat. Mm.
You brought your documents, right?
I'm gonna need to see
your birth certificate,
a copy of your employer's
house registration,
and a copy of their ID card.
Well, we don't have those, sadly.
Can we still proceed?
So, it's expensive
without documents, sadly.
Normally, you have
to get it renewed each year.
And in addition to that,
you will have to report
once every three months or more
to Immigration.
Were you aware of that?
Not at all?
Oh, it'll be all right.
When it's time to do that,
come to me, I'll help you, guys.
Nan, I was wondering if, well,
if the passport allows us
to get on a plane to travel.
[Nan] Of course, it does, yes.
But there are limits.
You can only get on planes in Thailand
or return to Myanmar.
- [waves crashing]
- [Nan] But since you live close,
it's easier to cross the border
on foot, you know?
[Korn] Right. So, how much
is it again, ma'am?
- [Nan] Twenty thousand.
- [seagulls squawking]
[waves crashing]
[seagulls squawking]
[Korn] Sorn.
Hey, Sorn.
Hey, Sorn.
Hey, Sorn! Dude, you're daydreaming.
Come on!
[bills rustling]
Nineteen, twenty, twenty thousand.
You're paid up.
Didn't you want one as well?
Twenty thousand.
[bills rustling]
- [Korn and Sorn] Thank you, Nan.
- [Nan] Of course.
[Korn] See you.
[Nan] Here we go.
My wallet's completely empty.
You'll be okay, dude.
Just call your favorite customer tonight.
[in soft voice]
"Ji, honey, I need a cell phone, please."
"Oh, yeah. Can you please buy it
for me, Daddy?"
- [fake giggles]
- Fuck you, Korn.
- [Korn grunting]
- Come here, you idiot.
[lively music]
I can lift my legs. Whoo!
[Korn] How about a race?
- [Sorn] Come on.
- Woo-hoo!
[whistle blowing]
[traffic cop] Hey, what are you doing?
Over here. Let's go.
[whistle blowing]
[keys jangling]
[breathes deeply]
[window slides open]
[exhales deeply]
I was told
that, um,
the Thai government has decreed,
well, entertainment companies
must close down.
Just for two weeks, but
it includes us.
- [host 1] What?
- [host 2] What are we supposed to do?
- [host 3] They can't be serious.
- [host 4] This is so bullshit.
[host 5] How can they just shut us down
like that?
[host 6] Come on, they can't do that.
Come on.
[host 1] What are we supposed to do
in the meantime?
[host 2] I still have bills to pay.
Help us.
- Is the government gonna pay for that?
- [host 3] It's so fucked up, man.
[Madame M] All right, boys.
Settle down. Quiet.
No matter what,
I'm gonna do my best
to help you all, okay?
Today is the last day
before the long break.
There will be many customers.
Go get ready. Go, go, go. Now.
The customers will be here soon.
[overlapping chatter]
[man] Mm-mm.
No need. Put it on my tab.
And, uh, make him crispy noodles
for his wife.
Yes, sir.
Hello, Ji.
[lighter clicks]
So, Joe, how can I help?
[Joe inhales deeply]
I think you know why I'm here.
You know, Ji,
the last job you did for me
was superb.
You didn't get caught, left no trace.
If you don't do this next one,
who knows what will happen?
[Joe] I came here to warn you.
I don't want you to end up
like the guy before you.
Especially, since you have a wife and kid.
Piece of advice for you, be careful.
You're a dad now, right?
[Bhoom whimpering]
- [heavy thudding]
- [Bhoom groaning]
[cop] Get him to the car.
[Bhoom grunting]
[muffled grunting]
[exhales sharply]
[breathes heavily]
[breathing deeply]
[Ji breathes heavily]
[exhales sharply]
I'm in, Joe.
I decided to take the job.
[Ji] So, how was your life as a soldier?
Well, it wasn't too different
from being a monk.
[Sorn] We had to wake up at the same time,
eat at the same time,
and sleep at the same time.
[ball thuds]
[narrator on TV] This is Chiang Mai,
one of the provincesin Northern Thailand.
With a land mass of approximately
20,107 square kilometers,
it's the largest province in the country.
- [car doors slam]
- [indistinct TV chatter]
[narrator on TV] mountain ranges,
valleys, flora and fauna.
[approaching footsteps]
[TV shuts off]
[chief] I'm here to invite all monks
and novices to join the army.
[abbot] Come on, they're all good men.
Look at them in the robes.
Don't make them fight people in battle.
If we don't go after them,
they'll be in our backyard.
You know what that means?
The Burmese soldiers will take our food
and burn our villages,
and leave us in awful poverty again!
[chief] And still,
you want to hide yourself at the temple?
Do we have any say in this?
I don't think so.
Have we ever had a choice in the past?
[birds chirping]
[Wan] Should we cross
the border into Thailand?
It's not very far from here.
[Yoon] Can we ever come back?
I mean, if we cross over to that side?
You and I, we'll leave together.
To hell with this.
That would be a mistake.
It's easier said than done.
It's a daydream, Wan.
I think we've got it good here, you know?
A place to sleep and all the food we need.
Do you even know anyone over there?
Any idea where you'll sleep
or what you'll eat?
I'll figure it out.
Ugh, you're inviting me with no plans.
You haven't thought about anything.
I'm staying.
[birds chirping]
[Yoon] Are you really leaving?
Are you coming with me?
I'll walk away.
[Yoon] Wan.
Are you really just gonna
leave me here alone?
I really want you to come along. Okay?
But I have to try.
I want to choose what my future is like.
[Ji] And how did you
end up working here, Sorn?
[Sorn] Actually, I did many jobs
before this, Ji.
From construction jobs to waiting tables.
After I had saved some money,
a friend named Korn and I hired a driver
to take us to the Chiang Mai city center.
[driver] Hey, wake up. We're here.
[car door closes]
Quick. Come here.
Come here.
Come here quickly.
Come on.
Get in.
Get in now.
[Wan] In there? Why?
[driver] Don't ask any questions.
Just get in.
[trunk shuts close]
- [breathing deeply]
- [car door closes]
[engine revving]
[both breathing deeply]
[car thuds]
[brakes rattle]
[immigration officer] Hello, young man.
- [driver] Hey there. How's it going?
- [immigration officer] Good.
Been a while since we saw you in Thailand.
What are you carrying this time?
[driver] Just goods
and necessities, as usual, sir.
[immigration officer]
Mind if I have a look?
[driver] Sure thing.
[Sorn] There was word of mouth
along the way that this job paid well,
so I gave it a try.
[slow mysterious music]
[glassware clinking]
- [Korn] Hello.
- [Wan] Hello.
Let me guess. You wanna work here, yes?
- Ah, yeah.
- [Madame M] What are your names?
- My name is Korn, sir.
- [Madame M] Mm.
I'm Wan, sir.
There's a surprise.
That's Wan here.
Another Wan over there.
Everywhere you look, there's another Wan.
Let's see. You could be called
Sorn. How about Sorn?
You'll be called Sorn now.
[Madame M] Got it? Repeat after me, Sorn.
- Sorn.
- [Madame M] Mm-hmm.
Hey, it's your first day here,
just take it easy.
You're new to Chiang Mai, right?
Yeah, bro.
- Is it that obvious?
- Over there, those green shoes.
Everyone who runs away from the army
wear shoes like that.
Anyway, just do your best out there, okay?
Work your charm, you'll get some tips.
You'll be great.
- Bye.
- All right. Thanks, man.
All right.
[Sorn] It felt strange at first.
But as time went by, I got used to it.
Can you guess
the first thing I bought myself
with the money I made?
A motorcycle?
Try again.
How about a cell phone?
Not that, either.
A pair of sneakers.
Really? Why?
Well, when I wore the green ones,
my friends would joke about it.
I have to make myself look
as Thai as possible.
Occasionally, when we went out
wearing the green shoes,
looking like hillbillies,
we'd get stopped by the police.
And the police,
they they fucking scare me.
They always rip me off.
The police are bastards,
you know what I mean?
[brooding music]
[loud thud]
[Ji] Actually, I snuck in quietly.
I slowly unbolted the lock.
[keys jangle]
[exhales deeply]
[foreboding music]
What was the problem with him?
[fire roaring]
- [Ji] He was a bad guy.
- [people clamoring]
He caused conflicts in society
and kept blaming the government.
- [protester 1] Tear gas! Run!
- [people scream]
[Ji] Nothing would have happened
if he had just kept to his studies.
[protester 2] Tyrant assholes!
[Ji] Our country needs peace.
- [coughing]
- [distant yelling]
Hey, Ji.
When we're done,
can I go home with you this time?
What? You normally hurry home, don't you?
[neck cracks]
I only have about 400 baht to my name.
And the club is closing down.
I'm not sure how I will survive.
Mm-hm, yeah, okay.
Come with me tonight.
I think you and I can get
into something fun.
Thank you, Ji.
[foreboding music]
[tense music]
[spray paint rattles]
[spray paint fizzing]
[Ji] Do you see the man
putting up the posters?
His name is Wuth.
He's 22 years old.
He looks just like an ordinary young man.
He must have had some drinks
with his friends.
This is my next target.
If I had a job for you to do,
and it's paid,
would you be interested?
I would be, yeah.
What kind of job?
[Ji] A guide.
Take my friend and I
to your hometown in Myanmar.
[Sorn] But how will we get there?
Isn't the checkpoint closed
because of COVID?
You know another way.
[inhales sharply]
coming back that way is nearly impossible.
And I don't really want
to go back to Myanmar.
[Ji] So are you gonna take my friend
and me to your hometown?
I can't do it.
[ominous music]
Hey, what's up, Sorn?
- Good night.
- [Bee] Night.
- No sugar daddy to see you off.
- What sugar daddy?
There were no customers,
so I made nothing.
It's okay. Maybe tomorrow.
We're closed for COVID.
Things may be closing,
but at least we're still here.
Come on. Let's go home.
[engine starts]
[suspenseful music]
[suspenseful music continues]
[Sorn] Come on. Give me a smile.
[Bee groans]
Hey, Sorn, did you pay rent?
[grunts softly]
- Huh?
- I asked if you already paid the rent.
Not yet.
Do you still have the money?
Sorn, where's my money?
It paid for a passport I need.
Oh, that's great, yeah.
I thought I'd be able to earn more money
if I had a passport,
so I spent the money on it.
Like an investment.
Oh, a passport, huh?
How's that going?
Everything's closed because of COVID.
You know that.
Yeah, and that's why we need that cash.
So what do you want me to do?
Why didn't you ask me about it?
[Sorn breathing deeply]
[Sorn] Hello, Nan.
- [Nan] Well, hello.
- [Korn] Hi.
[Nan] Clean your hands first.
You're not even wearing masks.
We want to know
when our passports are gonna come.
[Nan] It's only been a couple of days.
They're not ready yet.
You'll just have to wait a little longer.
Do you mind if we cancel them?
[Nan] Oh, I'm sorry,
it's too late to cancel them.
[Sorn] Can you tell us
when the passports will be ready?
[Nan sighs]
Listen, boys. I'm also waiting for them.
But due to this COVID, you know how it is.
Everything is getting delayed.
Why are you keeping our money
if the system is so wretched up?
[Nan] Well, see, I didn't ask you
to give your money to me.
You gave it to me yourself.
Do you remember?
I remember.
That was before I needed the money.
Can you give it back?
Or can you help hurry it up?
[Nan] I am trying to help you.
I'm helping you now.
But there's COVID.
Do you understand there's COVID?
- [Korn] We'll just head out.
- [Sorn] I understand.
- [Nan] Okay, you guys need to go now.
- Sorn, let's go.
[Nan] I'll call you
when the passports are ready.
So you don't have to bother me.
[Sorn] I'm asking you
because I don't have any money right now.
[Nan] Man, he talks
as if we have a lot of money.
Everyone is affected by COVID.
[car approaching]
[driver 1] Two carpenters
and two plasterers.
[worker] Okay, let's go.
When we first got here,
why didn't I notice this heat?
Well, to be fair,
we worked in a bar
where it's nice and cool.
Well, you have a point there.
[car approaching]
[driver 2] I need five people.
[Sorn] All right.
Do you know what
what kind of job we're gonna do?
Who cares? We're gonna do it.
[both chuckle]
[car starts]
[engine revving]
[motorbike engine revs]
[car honking]
[sparks crackling]
[birds chirping]
[sparks crackling]
[chirping frantically]
- [worker] Hey, the cops are here.
- [cop 1] Go, go, go.
[Korn] Sorn!
You need to show me your work permit.
[lieutenant] Do you have
any documents or permits?
Do you have a passport?
If you don't, you've broken the law.
We're gonna have to lock you up for that.
I do have a passport coming.
I can give you their number,
you can call. It's true.
[lieutenant] No, no.
Then can I talk to someone higher up?
[lieutenant] Huh?
You trying to get on my nerves?
Hey, take him away.
He's annoying.
[Ji] Calm down, Lieutenant.
I'll take it from here.
[lieutenant] Yes, sir.
[retreating footsteps]
It's you.
[door opens, closes]
I didn't know you're a cop.
So, what happened today?
What did you do to get caught?
[Sorn] I was trying to work.
I don't have a passport.
Oh, Nan's been holding out?
But Nan works with cops?
Sorn, do you remember the offer I made
the other day?
Well, what do you think?
Think of what?
[Ji] You remember I asked you
to take my friend and I to the other side?
To visit your hometown in Myanmar.
I don't know why
you don't want to go back there.
But they're going to put you away,
unless you help me out.
Then will I get to come back
if I take you the whole way?
[Ji sighs]
[tense music]
[Ji] This is just part of your reward.
If you help me finish this,
I'll pay you well.
But first, you have to promise me
that you will help me.
[Wuth] I've already checked the VPN.
It's all secured.
They won't be able to track me.
Bitch, I know it's risky,
but I really need the hard drive.
I'll check it all again
before I release it tomorrow.
You're planning out, right?
There's an escape route for me?
- They're not playing this time.
- [trunk clanks]
I'll see you soon.
There's a gun behind you. Be quiet.
And just do as I say,
and you'll be all right.
Easy there. Easy.
[Wuth grunts]
[breathing nervously]
[distant clattering]
[Wuth grunts]
You're Wuth, that right?
Why do you feel the need
to stand up against human trafficking?
What makes this a hill you wanna die on?
[rats squeaking]
You're aware
of who you're up against, right?
[Wuth] There's no reason not to risk it.
Imagine if you were me.
If you gone through half of what I have,
you'll be right where I am.
Have you thought about that?
[pocket rustles]
Do you really think you're gonna change
anything with what you're doing?
At least I'm doing something.
And the truth is,
if Bhoom was alive,
I wouldn't have to be here.
[ominous music]
Is it really worth it?
I might end your life today, kid.
[Wuth] And if I just vanished?
Then what happens?
Then someone will come and fight for me.
Just like I'm fighting for Bhoom.
[Wuth] I'm dying to know,
if it weren't me sitting here,
but maybe your mom,
or your wife, your baby,
would you dare do the same to them
as you're doing to me?
You're a killer.
[ominous music intensifies]
[music fades]
[light music]
[Wuth] Breakfast is ready, Bhoom.
Gotta eat, you know?
[Bhoom] Look at this, Wuth.
Eaun just sent this over to me.
All these documents prove
the Thai government
and a bunch of executives
are all involved in human trafficking.
So, what are you going to do?
I have to tell everyone.
- I'll be right back.
- [keys jangle]
Have some breakfast first.
I'll eat when I'm back.
See you.
[car engine revving]
What is your plan for him?
Leave him at the temple
where you're ordained,
and return by morning.
That's the plan.
You won't actually kill him?
My job was to make Wuth disappear.
Like Bhoom did.
But I don't want to kill him.
I'm tired of sinning.
So, why kill to begin with?
I wasn't given a choice at the time.
But now, I have more freedom.
'Cause I have you now.
Do I have a choice anymore?
What is it?
A checkpoint. There, see up ahead?
[engine idling]
Stay here, okay? Let me handle it.
[car door opens]
[car door closes]
[Wuth] Untie me.
Let's make a run for it.
Let's run, Sorn.
Let's let them through.
I need a help over here!
[suspenseful music]
[Ji] We better split up.
Hey, come back.
I can't trust anyone.
I appreciate it.
[bird screeching]
[suspenseful music]
- [panting]
- [approaching footsteps]
Don't do that again.
[engine whooshing]
You're nearly home again, Sorn.
Are you happy?
I don't want to go home, so no.
We're almost there, Wuth.
That's a lie.
I heard everything back there.
You killed Bhoom.
[Wuth sobbing]
[Wuth] You're a murderer.
You know they asked me
to kill you too, right?
I'm risking my life to save your ass.
[Ji] If I didn't help you cross
the border, you would get killed.
And it wouldn't just be you either.
Everyone you care about
would be rounded up and murdered.
You're welcome for helping you.
You're not helping anyone.
It doesn't matter if I'm alive or dead.
No one should be forced to disappear
just because he told the truth
about what's going on.
[somber music]
[car thuds]
[fire roaring]
Is it far?
It's a short walk from here. Not far.
Can we take a break?
What did you say?
Can we take a break?
Fine. Sorn, stop here.
[bird trilling]
This'll help you walk.
[handcuffs clinking]
[handcuffs rattle]
[Wuth sobbing]
[sobbing continues]
[all panting]
- [rifle cocks]
- [Yoon] Who are you? Put your hands up.
Ji, Wuth, put your hands up.
Hi, Yoon.
Hey, Wan.
[footsteps approaching]
Tie them up.
- Come on. Come on. Come here.
- Come.
[ominous music]
You're Wan, right?
[chief] What the fuck were you thinking?
Why'd you come back?
Why'd you desert?
Being a soldier was really that bad, huh?
Why aren't you answering me?
You bastard!
You're such a coward.
You escaped all alone,
and left your family fighting
for autonomy all alone.
Because of people like you,
we've never won a fight against Myanmar.
All right, guys, lock him up on his own.
[soldiers] Yes, sir.
[Sorn panting]
I'm still your friend.
Hey, Yoon.
I'm still your friend.
Hey, Yoon, are you gonna
leave me like this?
You came back for what exactly, you idiot?
You don't wanna kill me.
So that I can keep living
and keep suffering.
You want me to go into hiding.
Because it feels better to you
than killing me and being done with it.
[Ji sighs]
But it's too late for you
to find absolution.
You killed a man.
And he'll never come back.
[rapid footsteps]
[ominous music]
[explosion in distance]
[birds squawking]
[Wuth] I think you better do
what your boss says.
[Wuth scoffs]
Just kill me.
Don't you get it?
[Ji] I spared your life.
And brought you all the way here
to quit that gig.
You quit, huh?
[Wuth scoffs] Have you finally realized
you're serving a fucked-up system?
[explosion in distance]
The thing you have to know is that,
that someday, this majorly
fucked-up system will collapse.
And you'll go down with it.
[Ji] Someone's coming. Hide.
Stay here.
[fighting grunts]
[both grunting, groaning]
[foreboding music]
- [thwacks]
- [grunts]
[Wuth panting]
[heavy breathing]

What are they trying to do?
I told them to go back to Thailand.
Why did they come back here?
They aren't going back to Thailand.
They came all this way to go
to the temple, so he can join.
Here, we can stop.
[Yoon] So, what's your next move?
[Sorn] I don't know. What's next, Ji?
[Ji] I'll leave Wuth to you.
You take him the rest of the way.
As for me,
I have to go back to Thailand.
If the sun rises and I'm not back,
we're all in trouble.
If I take you back to Thailand,
I'd kill you.
I would have no choice.
You need to stay.
For your own good.
This bag has all of your belongings.
Hey, Wan.
You know what has to be done, right?
What are you saying?
[Yoon] I'm saying they can't know
I helped you.
[Sorn] Ji, you need to shoot him
in the shoulder.
Let's use my pistol. It's more realistic.
[pistol cocks]
Cover your ears.
- [gunshot]
- [gasps]
[exhales deeply]
[Wuth] I don't think I can walk anymore.
[Sorn] Just keep going,
we'll be there soon.
[Wuth] What does that mean?
[Sorn] It means stop complaining
and keep on walking.
Come on, Wuth.
Let's go.
Come on, let's get in the water.
Take off your clothes and get in.
[water trickling]
Get in.
[Wuth] Just a second.
It's cold.
Come on.
[birds chirping]
[Wuth] I'm not sure
if I'm gonna miss Thailand while I'm here.
Who knows, maybe I'll miss Thailand a lot.
[Sorn] I thought you hated Thailand.
[Wuth] How can I hate my homeland?
[Wuth] I love my homeland.
I want to make it better.
I want to live a good life.
I want to be with the people I love.
[Sorn] I don't even know
where my home is anymore.
[breathes deeply]
[Wuth] It's okay.
[raindrops pattering]
[thunder rumbling]
[rain pattering]
[breathes deeply]
[rain pattering in distance]
- [Wuth] I hold it like this?
- [Sorn] Yeah.
[Wuth] Should I hold it tight?
- [Sorn] Yeah, like that.
- [Wuth] Okay.
[Sorn] After that,
you should twist to roll the fabric.
[Wuth] Like this?
[Sorn] Hold it, pull it tight.
[Wuth] Like this, right? Roll it this way?
- [Sorn] Yep.
- [Wuth] Do I need to raise it this high?
- [Sorn] Not quite that high, no.
- [Wuth] Okay.
- Like this?
- [Sorn] Yeah.
- And then, you go
- I take my arm out, right? That way.
[rain pattering]
- Exactly.
- And then?
Then it goes right this way.
[rain pattering]
Am I pretty, Mrs. Sorn?
I wonder if living here
will distract me from everything.
Just take your time to adjust.
Consider this to be like
to be like your second home.
I'll have to do that, I guess.
[breathes deeply]
[bell ringing in distance]
This is for you.
Ji left it for you.
Try to go back to Thailand.

[background chatter]
Bee, are you okay?
You haven't heard from Sorn yet, huh?
Not a word.
Did you report him missing?
He's illegal. It's pointless to try.
The police won't care.
Even if they did care,
he's still undocumented.
Ah, damn it.
That really sucks, I'm sorry.
Well, you should stay
with Daddy Meng for a while.
'Cause he does pay you really well,
if nothing else.
Look, honey.
He's offered you so much
that you haven't taken.
Like a condo, and a car, and a
Whatever it is, just take it
and thank him for it.
Especially with COVID, you know?
Accept them now,
and then start over with your man.
Hey, what are you
[background chatter]
They hired you to be here,
so stop pouting.
I'm getting in.
I'm back! Whoo!
[all whooping]
Huh? Here I come!
- [laughter]
- [indistinct chatter]
All right! Okay!
- [customer] Hey there.
- Hello, sir.
- [customer] How much?
- How about 2k?
[customer scoffs]
Come on, this economy?
Twelve hundred baht.
[customer] One thousand.
Okay, yeah.
[customer] Okay, what are you
gonna do for that?
Anything you want, I'll do.
[customer] Get in.
It's tiring, being poor.
- [Sorn] It's fine.
- [Bee chuckles]
Yeah, you would say that.
So, what would an easy life be like?
Well, if I were rich,
we could be anything.
We could go to a luxurious hotel,
and eat as much shrimps and crabs
as we want.
How about that?
Let's negotiate.
[somber music]
[indistinct chatter]
[inspector] Som.
Have you heard from Ji?
[inspector] Not yet.
But I've ordered everyone
to look into it as a matter of urgency.
You don't have to wait here.
