DORM:

I still remember the first time I left home.

It was a Sunday afternoon...

that felt both hectic and lonely.

It was the last day...

of the mid-term break for me

and my seventh grade friends.

It felt like the last day of freedom...

A freedom we'd come to enjoy during our vacation.

Stop crying!

You didn't get any work done over vacation.

One thing I felt that...

I'd never come to terms with is...

- How do you want it cut, handsome?

- Crew cut.

the last day of vacation...

Even so...

some of us can't wait for school to re-open...

because it means being

reunited with our friends.

Except for me.

Hey! Stop pressing the buttons!

Jaew! Pen! Take good care of the house!

Yes, ma'am.

You know, we could've waited for Ton...

to finish 7th grade before

transferring him to another school.

The sudden move is a shock for me as well.

Listen, this isn't open for discussion, understand?

Ton's new school is up-country right, Dad?

Yes, it's in Chonburi, son.

Where will he sleep?

In the school dormitory.

They have everything there.

Remember, son, a man

must be able to live anywhere.

Are we almost there?

No, we have to cross the Bangpakong River first.

Hurry up and make a wish, Toh!

If you hold your breath as we cross the bridge...

whatever you wish for will come true.

Really, Mom?

But don't cheat and sneak a breath first.

Ton, hold your breath too.

What did you wish for?

For Dad to send me to boarding school with Ton.

How about you, Ton?

Saichon Witaya School

Toh, play around here, okay?

Student Dormitory

Good afternoon, Teacher.

I'm Miss Pranee...

the dorm master for junior high boys.

This must be Chatree.

Yes, ma'am.

Parents, please wait here.

Chatree, follow me, please.

Don't dilly dally now.

Hey, it's a new kid.

Where's he from?

He seems like a troublemaker.

This is your bed.

Go collect your blanket.

Make sure to make your bed every morning.

Every boy must take care of himself here.

No one will serve you or

pamper you like you were at home.

Dad has written your name on everything.

Study hard, son.

Don't get into trouble, okay?

Please keep an eye on him.

I will.

Don't be so noisy.

Chatree, follow me.

Dinner is served at 6 p.m.

Everyone must eat on time.

This is your seat. Sit down.

Next term, I'm sending Ton to boarding school.

Why the sudden decision to send him away?

Mother...

this new school has high

standards and a good reputation...

unlike his current school.

The kids don't study hard enough.

Before exams, they play around and watch TV.

But they still get good grades.

That means the school has low standards.

This is Chatree.

Your new classmate.

Chatree will board here and study with us...

starting from this term.

Go take your seat.

Chatree, Master Peng is calling.

My name's Peng.

That's Dr. Nui.

This idiot is Sarote.

That ass is Pok.

I'm Toei.

What's your name?

Chatree.

His name's Chatree.

Okay, Chatree.

Are you scared of ghosts?

Of course, why wouldn't he be?

I'm not asking you, idiot.

Are you scared of ghosts?

Good. As we've been here longer...

we're gonna tell you the history of our school.

I just found out myself.

I'm sure you guys haven't heard it.

A senior told me that...

one of the cooks had a beautiful daughter.

She was the crush of every boy in the school.

But one day...

she hung herself...

from a Po tree.

No one knew why she suddenly killed herself.

When the police conducted an autopsy...

they discovered that she was...

four months pregnant.

A pregnant ghost is the nastiest kind around.

The story goes, a group of senior boys...
