A missionary begs to be moved from disease-ridden Bangkok.A musician plays a private show for ghosts.A student abandoned by his lover bleeds to death in the street.A plastic surgeon designs a girl a new face. A woman decides whether to cook a final meal for a dying murderer. Lurching through decades, from Bangkok's rich past to its imagined, uploaded future, witness the city as it changes from a booming capitalist hub to a city engulfed by water, through human tales seeping into one another, held together by delicate threads.
