At an old school converted into an impromptu hospital, a group of soldiers are being treated for a strange disease that causes a permanent sleeping sickness.

One of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s most evocative films and, at the same time, a beautiful homage to his pet actress, Jenjira Pongpas Widner.
