Arnold is a clever student who has won many academic awards. One day, he meets Bee who runs an underground business helping students cheat on their exams. Bee asks Arnold to join his cheating ring and offers him a lot of money.

While Arnold considers working with Bee, many of his schoolmates, unhappy with their school’s disrespect of their freedom, organise a big protest. Shot in a patient, deadpan style, this debut feature film from Soroyonos Prapapan is smart and funny satire of the Thai political system disguised as a coming-of-age story.
