Edge of the Empire

Synopsis: "Edge Of The Empire" is based on a 1973 novel by Sanya Pholprasit. Set in southern Mongolia over 1,000 years ago, a small tribe called Tai was a colony under the power of the Great Han who enslaved them. Oppressed by the Han, the Tai unites to strike back for their freedom, justice, and country. This Thai historical epic revolves around heroes who sacrificed themselves to fight against the invasion of intruders and sought for the freedom of the country.

I have to make many more.

But why do you need so many?

What about you?

Why do you keep spinning thread

from the Uethong flowers?

Haven't you got enough clothes?

It's not just me who needs clothes.

You wear them too!

You don't want the people to be cold.

I don't want our people

to be bullied by the Han.

My swords.

...will one day taste their blood.

Buakham, run!

Let me go!

You keep out of this!

I won't let you treat a Thai woman like that!

She's just a peasant!

She's only here to serve the Han.

I can do anything I want to her.

You should know better.

I do not allow disrespect

for the Thai people.

You not only acted offensively

to a Thai woman,

but you also tried to kill Fesian,

who is a Han soldier.

- But I...

- No excuses!

If you say you didn't attack Fesian,

how did your sword end up in my hand?

Give me back my sword!

Who said you could get up?

You have broken Tiewliang's rules.

Tiewliang's rules!

You can have a choice.

Stay here and spend the next twelve months

cleaning the city walls.


Or take your sword and everything else

and answer to your father

back in Loyang City.

Tiewliang tried to humiliate me, Father!

What did I do that was so bad

I should be sent home?

I was just teasing a Thai girl.

What's the big deal?

I was just teasing a Thai girl.

What's the big deal?

Twenty years ago,

we fought these savages at Lad Kwan field.

Our soldiers who died

were the sons and husbands of Han women.

Our women suffered

because of the barbarism of the Thai.

Isn't it only right that their women

should know what it's like to suffer too?

Tell me, Father,

what did I do that was so wrong?

Get Litongjia!

Lord Litongjia,

Lord Liboon wants to see you right now!

Tiewliang has ordered

my son back to Loyang.

He has ignored my demands
