My Girl

Synopsis: Jeab hears that his childhood sweetheart Noi-Naa is to be married, so he makes the trip back home to his provincial village. As he does so, the memories come flooding back to his childhood in 1980s Thailand. He remembers always being late to school, so his father would have to give him a ride on the back of the motorcycle. After school, he would always play with Noi-Naa and her girlfriends while the neighborhood boys rode their bicycles and played football and Chinese fantasy characters.
Genre: Comedy, Romance

customers went over to Noi Nah's father.

Noi Nah's father was the same.

The usual


A bit less off the back.

Sorry. I'm not in the mood today.

My mother couldn't understand the fuss.

She said they were cutting hair,

not throats.

Hair would always grow back, and people

would need it cut again. Why argue?

Gone to get a haircut. Back at 4.


Take me into town.

Our fathers may not have been talking,

but our mothers were very close.

What's up? You look tired.

It's my husband.

I didn't sleep a wink last night.

Still trying for a second child?

Nothing like that!

He kept me up all night.

Everyone said my mother

was kind-hearted...

Jeab! The water's for showering,

not for playing! why was she such a nag?

She was always complaining.

About everything.

Where are you off to?

I'm going to play with Noi Nah.

The park's just there. Why don't

you walk. And don't cross the road!

There are lots of cars.

Just last week Daeng's nephew

was hit by a car.

Are you listening?

If you get into an accident...

I'll belt the living

daylights out of you!

You're just like your father...

never wrong.

You never listen to me.

I'd never crossed the road to

the market before.

But the more my mother forbade me,

the more I wanted to go.

Oh no! There's been an accident!

A kid's been hit!

After that incident,

I was too afraid to go.

Juk's got a new toy.

Tomorrow we can play

with it after school.

Juk's bought it already?

Yeah. We'll see it tomorrow.

Mom! Open the door!

See you.

Bye bye.

Every time I came home late,

my mother was waiting

with a cane in hand.

You're late!

Take that! Take that!

I used to wonder why she'd hit me

for such a small thing.


Jeab! Wake up!

The bus is here!


I'm going.

You still not up, Jeab?
