    Fed up with her daily routine, Ning takes on a new job at a furniture shop. There, she gets the opportunity to get away from her indifferent husband Jarot for a couple of days, having to deliver a sofa with her colleague Mur. Driving on windy roads up the mountains to the remote village where the client lives, a delicate love story evolves between the two. Meanwhile, left-behind Jarot is trying to figure out the meaning of the word “husband” while watching the matchmaking programs on TV.

    I started to write The Science of Fictions in 2013. The story evolved from the idea of a personal history of someone excluded from society and as much as I can, put recognition to the recent issue of post truth, history and technology. We must keep going, to determine our stories and put them on the screen.
