This film marks a homecoming of sorts for director Yuthlert Sippapak. Like his characters, childhood friends who reminisce about the good, old days growing up together, he is from the town Loei (of which Chiang Khan is a district). And like Yuthlert, his protagonist here, Tookkae (Kao Jirayu La-ongmanee), is a film lover whose passion takes him, circuitously, into show business.

Tookkae’s nostalgia includes times spent sweetly with a girl named Pang (Chontida Asavahame), whom he still fancies. A script he writes fatefully throws him and Pang back together again. Ostensibly a story about a boy pursuing the girl of his dreams – and out of his league – the film also pays homage to a bygone era of classic Thai cinema, including tributes such as one for 1970s Thai director and poster artist Somboonsuk Niyomsiri, aka Piak Poster.
