[engine starts]
[woman] No idea.
He didn't tell you either, huh?
He called the whole department in.
Do you think we're getting let go?
[employees murmuring]
Oh, my gosh.
[Tong] All right, is everyone here?
We're ready.
Okay, then.
Well, first of all I am very sorry
for doing this by Zoom.
I am feeling a bit
under the weather right now,
and I thought I ought to be very cautious.
As we all know,
the world economy has slowed down
quite a bit over the past two years,
mainly due to the deadly disease.
And now Thailand, as well as our company,
are really in pretty bad shape.
We had reserves,
so we expected to be able
to handle this problem at hand.
We handled the first waves,
and tried to come up new solutions.
When everyone applied for the
"Find, Pay, End" assurance package,
we believed that it was an indication
of much better days.
So we were hopeful
that we'd be able to regain profits
sometime next year.
However, we were knocked out
when the fifth one hit us.
And that's why we're meeting.
On behalf of the board members,
I'd like to say
what we have to do here
pains us as much as you,
because you really are
part of our family now.
We have worked side by side
like brothers and sisters.
We're aware you all have contributed a lot
and that those contributions
have assisted our company.
This made it very difficult
for us to decide
who would be the 12 people to be
laid off today.
The board and I discussed it,
and we decided
that you'll choose at random.
What does he mean?
- [Tong] Chutt.
- What's happening? I hope it's not me.
- Here.
- [Tong] Can you hear me?
Yes, sir.
Please shake the cup of fortune sticks
and pick one as your number now.
After you've chosen one,
you should pass the cup.
Got it.
[sticks rattling]
[suspenseful music playing]
[Tong] It's, uh it's very simple.
I'll call out 12 numbers.
If my number matches
the number you hold in your hand,
then you have been laid off.
[suspenseful music continues]
- [thud]
- [gasping]
[Tong] Thirteen.
[employee exhales]
- Fuck you!
- Oh my gosh!
[door opens]
- [door slams]
- [Tong] Nine.
[theme music plays]
[Nerdy Boy]
I think you'll be waiting a while.
[Tud] Fuck, I bet.
That's why
they named it scuba.
When you get high,
it's almost like you're under the sea.
This is so great.
Then there's no need for scuba diving.
[both laugh]
Don't people go to the wrong room, ma'am?
Sometimes, yeah.
Thanks a lot.
Uh, can I have a glass of milk?
[Toom] Milk?
If you've got it.
[suspenseful music playing]
Thank you, ma'am.
Um, are you an athlete?
No, ma'am. I work for an IT company.
I mostly work on a computer code writing.
And you, ma'am?
Oh, an insurance company.
Mm. You're lucky
to be employed at this point.
My friend worked in insurance,
but was laid off yesterday.
[scoffs] Yeah.
[suspenseful music continues]
Another one?
Oh, that'd be awesome.
[crowd yelling indistinctly]
[suspenseful music playing]
- [trainer] Hey, bro.
- Hello there.
- Hello, hello.
- Hello.
- What round?
- The third round.
[crowd continues yelling]
Let's go.
Thanks for the drinks.
Toom is my name.
Well, thank you, Toom.
[intense music playing]
[crowd chanting indistinctly]
[bell rings]
[referee] Let's fight!
[crowd cheering]
[man] Thank you, Boy.
[intense music continues]
[referee] Whoa, stop!
[trainer] Fuck this!
- [referee] Two, three.
- What the fuck is he doing?
[jazzy music playing]
[referee] Four. Get up! Fight!
[intense music continues]
[referee] Stop! One, two,
- three, four
- [inaudible]
five. Come on, Red.
And go!
[intense music continues]
[referee] Fight!
- [bell rings]
- [referee] Stop!
What the hell were you doing?
I didn't mean to, man.
[trainer] Round three.
[bell rings]
[referee] Fight!
[crowd continues cheering]
[cheering fades]
[cell phone rings]
The job has been done.
I saw it. I'm watching it live.
[Kanchit] Someone will deliver the money
first thing in the morning.
[Tong] Thank you. You remember the steps?
[Kanchit] Yes, sir.
Drop the box of cash at the door,
knock on it three times,
and then, get lost.
- [Tong] Thank you, Kanchit.
- [Kanchit] Thank you, sir.
- [Tong] Goodbye.
- [Kanchit] Goodbye.
[jazzy music playing]
[cashier] Didn't you just get laid off?
You're spending a lot.
I said this wine
is "Buy Two-Get One Free."
[somber music playing]
- [register beeping]
- Your total is 50 baht.
I wanna get more ink.
[Tud] Do you have room for more?
[Milli] On my butt.
[Milli chuckles]
And what'll you get?
I heard Johnny Depp
has one that reads,
"Winona Forever."
I was
thinking of getting mine
to say, "Teddy Forever."
And if this ends?
Are you gonna break this up?
"If," I said.
Then I'd find a boyfriend
that also had your name.

Can I go in deeper?
Can you take it deeper in your mouth?
[Nerdy Boy moans over phone]
Okay, it's in. It's all the way in.
[Nerdy Boy moans]
[handset clatters]
[Nerdy Boy] Keep using your mouth
- [coffee maker whirring]
- [man over TV] The national flag
symbolizes the great pride
that we all have in our freedom,
and how we didn't fall
into the clutches of slavery.
Please stand now, as we raise the flag
to our national anthem.
[Thai National Anthem playing over TV]
[clamoring over TV]
[man on TV, in Thai] Get down, get down!
[man on TV] Hey, don't do this!
They're all our children!
These kids did nothing wrong, sir!
[woman] Arrest them!
[water running]
[man, over TV] Get down!
No, don't do this!

I'm sorry, your package.
Okay, great.
- [grunts]
- [giggles]
[knocking on door]
[M] Who is that?
[knocking continues]
Hmm. Oh.
Sup, bro?
Hey, guys.
[Tud] Milli.
[funky music continues]
"Teddy Forever."
"Teddy Forever"?
Who's Teddy though?
Bro, it's my name.
But I thought it was Tud.
That's my Thai name.
Teddy's my English name.
[M] Why do you need an English name?
[Tud] When I studied in Australia,
people couldn't say Tud,
so I had them call me Ted.
And then that became Teddy.
[M] Ah, I see.
Come here.
[phone ringing]
Who is this?
Oh, Toom. What's up girl?
Are you kidding? What is this, a riddle?
What's this about, Toom?
A lot of cash?
What, 500? 10000? 50000?
You mean someone left
a million in cash at your door?
[tense music playing]
[Toom] Suppose it's true,
what would you do?
[Fon] If I were you,
I'd leave it where you found it.
If it were 100 or 500 baht,
then I might keep it.
But a million baht?
That only happens in movies.
Why do you ask?
Don't worry about it, okay?
Just a question.
Gotta run.
[knocking on door]
[tense music playing]
[knocking on door]
[door unlocks]
[door squeaking]
[Bum] I'm sorry to disturb you, ma'am.
Did you happen to see a package
in front of your door here?
Well? I'm waiting.
Why don't I ask again?
Did you see a package
sitting in front of your door here, ma'am?
I didn't.
One more time.
One more time and that's it.
Was a package left
in front of your door this morning, ma'am?
No, it wasn't.
[Bum] I have a feeling that
you're not being totally honest with me.
All right, package wasn't here.
for bothering you early then.
[banging on door]
[banging continues]
[banging continues]
[unsettling music playing]
If I find it in here,
someone is gonna die.
[unsettling music continues]

Check under the bed too, Noi.
Okay, Bum.
[Bum continues urinating]
