This Thai movie is based on the S.E.A Write Award winning and well-received novel of the same name written by Khun Jane Vejjajiva, also known as Ngarmpun Vejjajiva, a sister of the current Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. The story is about a 9-year-old girl, whose mother, whom she has not seen for almost five years, is suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease, a severe illness. Kati travels to meet her mother and be there with her during the last weeks of her life. There she learns the reason why her mother left her behind with her grandparents and she also learns that she has the chance to meet the father she has never known. You can read more about the book via the link. The movie is scheduled to be shown in Thai cinemas nationwide on 8 January next year. There is also an English translation of the book which I happen to have a copy of, in case foreigners want to read this poignant story.
