Rahaf al-Qunun: Saudi woman pleads for asylum
The shocked Nam does not respond for fear of hurting him, so Top thinks that she accepts the confession. Nam is uncomfortable with the situation, especially when Top kisses her suddenly when the two are attending a friend's birthday party, during which Top shares the story about a promise he made with Shone: that they would never like the same girl.
Meanwhile, Nam's increasingly close relationship with Top, Shone, and their associates has distanced her from her three old friends; the four barely talk with each other anymore as they enter their third year. Unable to repress her emotions, Nam breaks up with Top shortly before the finals, in which she ranks first, making her able to settle in the United States.
She then has a tearful reconciliation with her old friends, who help her to do the "10th recipe" of the love guidebook: direct confession. However, to her dismay, Shone reveals that he is dating Pin, a mutual friend. That night, Shone comes home to find out that he is accepted into a trainee program in a professional soccer team, and has to leave for the camp the following morning. He goes into his room and takes out a diary containing all of Nam's photos; Shone has always loved Nam, even before her transformation, but never manages to gain the courage to confess.

He leaves the diary in front of Nam's house; at the same time, Nam is shown mourning his rejection in her bedroom. Nine years later, Nam and Shone have become successful fashion designer and photographer, respectively. Nam returns to Thailand to attend a variety show. She gets a surprise visit by Shone, who reveals that he has been waiting for her after all those years.
The movie re-aired on its movie cable network during the thanksgiving season due to viewers requests at 8pm. It was shown again on March 30, and June 9, under free movie block Kapamilya Blockbusters. The film received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences, despite the average budget.
One bad intoxicated John is featured. He turns up repeatedly throughout the piece during his man in the street twenty minute "interview. Unfortunately it all seems so contrived. That said, lots will watch because it's "Sex Worker TV" and that is going to sell us some commercials. Just put it on the air. Except its offensive.

It only exploits the subject. Is the person with the camera suddenly pointing at his damaged, found on the street, next door type of girl, any better than the Johns he condemns? Note to wannabe verite documentarians. Do your homework. Spend some time getting to know your only two subjects without your camera strapped to your hand.

This may take more than a couple of weeks. While your at it, learn how to frame a shot or get someone who can. Watch "Born Into Brothels" to see how the pros do it. I have spent upwards of 15 years in and around Bangkok, while doing business there. I have come to know the Thai people at every level of their society, as I speak the language. The sad story of Pla..
It is unfair to blame the film maker for her death, as the sheer number of psychopaths who roam the streets of Patpong and Soi Cowboy grows by the minute Its simple for these unfortunates to run into " Mr. Goodbar" and their short and misery laden lives are snuffed out. And yes, as Pla says, no one cares for her The problem is one which has little chance of ever being solved The price of poverty is huge I was deeply moved by this thoughtful and sensitive documentary about the life of a young girl in Bangkok. We have become a disposable society and in this story, we manage to dispose of people as well.
It made me feel helpless and frustrated especially watching the portrayal of the European low life with his stupid grin. Most other documentaries about the sex trade in Thailand is sensationalized and glamourized. Not this one, it draws us in and shows us what really goes on behind the smile. I was hoping for a happy ending, for some goodness to come through, for some hope.
I recommend this documentary to every one, it could even be shown in high schools. Maybe it will shame some people into not going to Bangkok to indulge in the sex trade and exploitations of these poor people.
DragonRoll 1 September This is the worst and most irresponsible documentary I have ever seen. The narrator, driven by his ambition to do an expose on the Thai sex trade industry, picks a random handicapped prostitute and totally sets her up for the kill. Mr Clark, while pretending to actually care about Pla through his narrative, is at the end responsible of depraved indifference in her murder. He might as well have pulled the trigger himself. This "director" belongs in a prison where he can bring harm only on to himself. I was sickened by this documentary, more so by the total lack of good judgment on the part of Mr.
Clark on the main subject of his documentary. Shame on you for getting a girl killed, who had a very hard life to begin with. Really moving portrait of a girl working in economically oppressive conditions. The images catch the raw side of bangkok.
After reading the reviews, I'm not sure if it is real or fake the ending. The official website says "film" but the reviews say documentary. So I'll put forward that it is a great film. The main subject, Pla, is very dynamic on camera. One of the best subjects I've seen on this matter. I can't say I would hold it as high as Born Into Brothels, or Sacrifice, but it is in my top ten of films on this subject. It may be because I just saw the film, but I can't get the girls smile out of my mind.
The problem with white boys in the red-light district in any city is that it is dangerous to these girls in more than one way. The really sad thing about this film although all intentions was good but so naive was that the girl of course was perceived as "hanging" out with a rich white guy who paid for her services, as girls do in the red light zone.
And this guy Jordan Clark is so naive that he doesn't recognize the violence that is there. I get a feeling that he is somewhat superstitious in his way of looking at the world and this environment in particular. Probably religious in some way, because this is so typical with these people trying to impose there moral standards and be morally upset as they've done in Africa and elsewhere.
Spells disaster, just as much prostitution as anywhere else So what happens after this well meaning young man has left? Well, the pimps controlling her and her neighborhood gets right to it.
What are Thai women really like?
They "know" of course that a girl like that doing a film and all certainly got more money stashed away for herself from this deal with the tourist guy. So they get right to it, to get their share and that killed her of course. She's just another expendable commodity in that environment and nobody will ever ask for her. Make no mistake, those guys don't care one bit.
And there are 's more where she came from. So all in all; this film actually tells you more about the western world and its way of dealing with things than exposes the red-light district called Bangkok. I think this guy should just stay at home in his own environment where he probably is less harmful. I'm surprised. What's with all the smear campaign reviews? There seems to be a few VERY vocal haters of this film. Hmmmm What are you guys?
