SummaryCenters on the Luk Tung music scene, a style of music mixing Thai folk tunes and treacly Western pop. Director Marre joins Luk Tung star Surachai Sumbatcharon on the road as he takes his huge troupe across country to stage sprawling, uniquely Thai extravaganzas that are the common man's entertainment. We are also taken into the cities, into the kick-boxing arenas and the red-light districts where music plays an integral role.
