The film follows a journey back home taken by two sisters, Pinn and Pann, as they accompany their mother’s dead body. Their journey started when mother came from her small village in Southern Thailand to Bangkok to see Pann. Pann and her mother meet each other at a department store, and while Pann leaves her mother for a while to see her friend, mother gets into an accident and becomes unconscious. PANN hurries to call her sister, Pinn, who lives in Singapore, but Pinn cannot answer the phone because she is very busy at the moment. The next morning, mother finally passed away, and the sisters, who cannot be present at her death, head to the small village where their mother lived, with their mother’s dead body.
