Pen-Ek Ratanaruang directs this gritty thriller about crime, gangsters, and the will to survive in the wake of the 1997 Asia economic meltdown. After losing her job at a Bangkok bank, Tum wakes up one morning to find a box stuffed with cash on her doorstep. When the two hapless gangsters who had misdelivered the box come back to reclaim it, Tum finds herself with a pair of dead criminals in her apartment and a lot of explaining to do — especially to her nosy neighbor, Pen.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion and is free and open to the public.
