As a boy I was always

interested in the abnormal.

I liked to imagine

the history of each scar and imperfection.

When touching the scars

I felt that there was a story

beneath every wound.

A small abnormality to me

was something to contemplate.

What is this?

Why are you all here?

Calm down, calm down...

This is my territory

If we settle,

it means no more Yakuza

trespassing into this area.

They say this is their turf.

Then it's our fault.

You are idiots!

What the hell did you say?

Are you a fool??

Stop! Don't do it!

Don't move!

That's enough.

The money on the table is payment

for my men's results.

We won't invade your turf again.

You have received a warning.

Be careful where you do business.

I don't want to run into you again.

I am interested in childhood traumas.

How much left?

Twenty thousand.

This is only the interest.

When will you pay every cent?

Please sir, don't do this!

I don't have the money

to pay you now.

I'll find a way to pay all of it back.

So you're in love with him?

It will be very difficult if you choose

to do this again.

There won't be a next time

if I see you both together again.

Remember what I said.

You should go back to Japan

and we won't see each other again

I see.


I've checked everything

and I think she has problems

with her brain development.

This doll is a reminder of my father.

Look after it carefully.

Your daughter's condition is not that bad.

Zen's condition is stable

but she will need special care

so that she can be as normal as possible.

Some things will not come easily to her.

Although time has passed, you should know,

there is a reason as to why I let you go that day.

It is so difficult to look after

our daughter, but I am happy

because when I see her, I see you.

Zen is not like other kids.

She needs special care and attention.

My life is devoted to her.

I will always love you... Zin.

Zin and that Japanese are

contacting each other again.

What should we do?

Having fun playing by yourself?


Let's chat, have a seat.

You're Zen? Japanese name

just like her father.

Can you speak Thai?

What do you want?

Leave her alone!

Sit down!

You know what this is called?


Do you know?

I said leave her alone!

Let me tell you,

losing a toe can change

your way of life...

When you walk... when you run...

you're constantly reminded

of the past.

I should have done this to you then.

so you wouldn't have to be reminded

of the pain

every day.

Actually this place is quite convenient.

It can be a bit loud, but you'll get used to it.


It hurts!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

That was Zen performing

Thank you for the applause...

Thank you for the encouragement...

Don't be shy...

Check those pockets for coins...

Thank you...

Thanks very much...

Any more Ma'am?

Thank you, thank you, thank you everybody

Thanks very much...

Any more coins?

Thank you...

How for our second performance

Anybody want to test Zen's abilities?

Think of it as helping out the kid.

It's not taking advantage of her,

come on... this way a little bit...

I'll also give you a try...



That was a stupid thing to do!

What if her hand gets chopped off?

Which coward did this?

Oh, I thought she was really tough.

What else can she do?


It's OK, let's go...

It's OK, let's go...

Hey, hey hey, where are you going?

Hey, hey hey, where are you going?

You're dead, fat man!

Don't tell Zin about your leg, OK?

Are you OK?

I'm OK.

Hot everything can be caught in your hands.

Hot everything can be caught in your hands.

Let's do this, if you cannot

catch it with your hands,

Let's do this, if you cannot

catch it with your hands,

I'll yell...

I'll yell...

They're all gone now... all gone.

Let's do this. Next time it's

dangerous, I will yell... Flies!

Let's do this. Next time it's

dangerous, I will yell... Flies!

Let's do this. Next time it's

dangerous, I will yell... Flies!





Did you understand any of that?

You're supposed to duck.


OK Zen, for real now, OK?


What are you doing?

mom, you know she's not

normal like the other kids.

Why do you have her risk doing stuff like that?

Come on, it's good practice for her.

This way she can protect herself

when she needs it.

And we want to make money...

I know you mean well,

but it's not much money.

Well, it's enough to pay your doctor's bills.

The medicine you want

can have strong side effects

and they can be pretty bad.

I know.

But, you may be lucky with minimal side effects.

Why don't you head on home now?

Let's go out



mom will call tomorrow.

Let's go out!

Brush your teeth after you snack too, OK?



Let's go out!

Let's go...


Catch the ball... It's for Zen...

Do you want to try?

Do it for Zen,

Come, give it a try,

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

Thank you, very grateful...

Thank you, thank you...

mom, why is mom not coming with us?

Because we don't have enough money.

We need lots of money to

pay for medicine for auntie

We need lots of money to

pay for medicine for auntie

so when she's well, she can be with us.

so when she's well, she can be with us.

Why lots of money?

Zen! Look at this!

Looks like a lot of people

owe money to auntie Zin.

Oh, Zen, I'm so sorry,

I forgot to tell you that we cannot go out today.
