The upcoming general election

will see a tight battle

between two major parties,

the People's Party and the Liberal Party.

The campaigning has grown intense

as election day nears.

Polls have indicated that

the opposition People's Party

is leading its rival by a wide margin.

But the new Liberal Party

is fighting tooth and nail.

Their leader is Direk,

a former NGO activist

who'll deliver his final speech today.

He hopes to rally the masses

who've fought with him before

to come out and give his party a final push.

Brothers and sisters,

it's time for people's politics.

We've waited in vain

as government after government

gave us empty promises that came to nothing

and crushed our hopes over and over again.

We can't wait any longer.

Now it's time to write the destiny

of our nation with our own hands!


I promise you.

If I win this election,

I'll call off plans to build

this scandalous nuclear power plant.

Folks, remember his name.

Direk Damrongprapa.

Leader of the Liberal Party,

and the next prime minister of Thailand!


In your view, do you think

the culture of corruption

has reached a crisis point?


I always stress that

conflict of interest

is like a tumor in Thai society.

It's eating us from the inside

without us noticing.

In you opinion, Professor,

what should normal citizens

like us do to cure the illness

that's crippling our society?

Should we sit still,

or should we do something to change it?

At the moment,

Thai society is being stifled

by what I'd like to call the surplus

of righteous discourse.

What's that?

We keep blabbering about

how everybody should do good things.

But look around,

I don't see anybody doing anything good.

Thai society is longing for a hero.

A hero must show himself to solve

the crisis of the nation.

Come on, I don't believe in heroes.

We keep asking for a hero

but have we really ever seen one?

How many times have we put our hopes

in a so-called hero

only for him to turn out to be a crook

who robbed the country blind?


I think we should stop

fantasizing about heroes.

Or a knight in shining armor.

Such a thing doesn't exist.

So what else do you think

we can put our hopes in?

We must believe in the power of the individual,

in the power inside all of us.

I think a hero already exists

inside each of us.

We all have a hero inside.

It's up to us whether we'll

to set him free or not.

Who's that?

Who're you?


This is the night of danger and fear

But I'd risk my life,

just to have you near

Red Eagle

Maybe it's fate, maybe it's a misfortune

That makes my heart struggle to be near you

Every night and day,

I fight whatever stands in my way

To keep you safe and warm

I'm a man lost in a maze without a light

But your love guides me

through the darkest night

So I'm not afraid,

I'm not afraid

I'm not afraid,

I'm not afraid

So I'm not afraid,

I'm not afraid

I'm not afraid




What happened?

The government betrayed us.

They sent infiltrators to get us fighting.

Vasana, you should run.

Or you'll be in trouble.

I won't.

The government must come clean about this.

I'll go to Bangkok.

I'll sort this out with the Prime Minister.

You have 5 minutes, Miss Vasana.

He has a tight schedule.

I won't take too long.

What do you want from me?

I don't have the right

to want anything from you.

Your Excellency.

I'm here as an ordinary citizen.

Will you cut the sarcasm?

Say what you're here to say, I'm in a hurry.

It's about the nuclear power plant.
