The oppression of the student revolts of the 1970s and the military coup of 2006 are the implicit historical anchors of a traumatic family chronicle in equal parts. A woman is taken to a safe house, where she shares her last meal with her husband before he leaves the country illegally. Thirty years ago, Ploy was a child, left in a coma after drowning. Her father, a soldier, has been missing for three years and her mother is recovering from a nervous breakdown. Together with her lover, her husband’s younger brother, she relives the traumas of her youth.
