Hi-So

Ananda has returned home to Thailand from studying abroad. Unsure of his career plans, he tries his hand acting in a new movie for a famous director. During the filming in a small seaside town, Zoe, his girlfriend from University, arrives for a week-long visit. But the change of country takes its toll and she soon becomes frustrated at the situation. Several months later, the filming is complete and summer had turned to winter. Back in Bangkok, Ananda has begun a new relationship with May, who works at the movie production company. But soon, she finds herself in the same situation as Zoe.
