Karaoke Girl

This intimate portrayal of a young woman who works as a hostess in Bangkok to support her rural family takes its fictional roots from the emotional real life story of the lead actress. As a result, this drama, which tells a familiar tale about a young woman trapped in her economic situation, exudes a striking authenticity. As Sa struggles to maintain an honest relationship with both her family and her boyfriend, she slowly sees her opportunity for a normal life slipping through her fingers. Visra Vichit-Vadakan’s first feature is a heartbreaking and beautiful debut from a talent to watch.
