One afternoon, Kaen, Noi, and Pa Nit, employees of an apartment building, are cleaning the boss’s room. They eat lunch, chat about this and that, and enjoy the cool breeze from the canal. At six o’clock, they wait for the national anthem to mark the passing of another peaceful day in the kingdom.
This short is commissioned by the Ministry of Culture to honor the 83rd birthday of HM the King.
I’ve never met the King, never even seen him, except on TV. I suspect most Thai people are like me. As a man we may not know His Majesty, but as a symbol, his presence is felt all around us, like the warm sunlight or the cool breeze of an afternoon, a constant amid the conflicts currently afflicting our nation.
