    Documentary

    Kanya, a tour guide but also a hotel representative automated voice, leads a foreign guest, Alex, through Bangsaen, a beach town in the east of Thailand. Since Kanya’s presentation is overtly aestheticized and strictly regimented, Alex decides to explore the town by himself, fantasizing about getting out of the frame.
