Mae bia

Synopsis: Chanachol has spent several years overseas, so on his return to Thailand he signs up for a tour to familiarise himself with his homeland again. He is instantly attracted to his guide, the voluptuous Mekhala. And she clearly has eyes for him too. They begin an affair, but both are keeping secrets from each other. Chanocol has a wife, Mai Kaew, and a son waiting for him at home. Mekhala, meanwhile, has her own secret relationship: with a particularly jealous snake whose fangs soon have Chanachol's name all over them...
Genre: Drama, Thriller

You go live with him.

Live with the man I love.

Tell him I'm sorry.

You and me-let's finish

everything here.

Never meet again

in this life or the next life.


I'm sorry.

The driver saw a snake

so he stomped on the brakes.

He wasn't sure

if anyone hit their head.

Bangkok folks think

that was a big snake.

But for the locals here

in Suphanburi, that's a tiny one.

At the Thai house we'll visit,

there are no snakes.

Don't be afraid!

Miss Mekala,

are you afraid of snakes?

Snakes? They're not that scary.

If we don't hurt them,

they won't hurt us.

Well, I'm afraid of them.

Anyway, Miss Mekala,

let me keep close to you.

Mr. Boy, you seem more scary

than the snakes.

Chanachon a very unusual name.

Mr. Pakpoom's friend.

He spent most of his life abroad

and just moved back to Thailand.

I hear he's keen on Thai culture.

Not a chance. Married,

with one kid.

Be careful, it's slippery.

Please come in.

Mr. Chanachon, are you okay?

You look pale.

I'm okay.

Please come this way.

You are welcome to rest here.

I'll bring some water and snacks.

This is cute.

What kind of dessert?

It's called "ja mongkut".

A traditional Thai dessert.

Where is Mekala?

She's been gone for a while now.

You seen to be a loner.

Not really.

I saw these beautiful flowers

and I wanted to take a closer look.

They're called "peep flowers".

Very fragrant, but I'm not sure

if you'll like them.

Thai house are split

into 3 sections.

This house is rare-it is divided

into 5 section.

There's no electricity.

We live like in the past.

Locals think this house is haunted.

Your ancestors must

have had many wives.

Actually, you're right.

Both my grandfather and my father

had several wives.

Who are the people in the photo?

My grandfather and his wives.

This is my father and his wives.

Where are you in this photo,

Miss Mekala?

Why don't you try

to search for me...

right where Mr. Chanachon is gazing.

Here is Kosoom, my new wife.

And this is Mekala.

How old are you?

Five, sir.

The first year I was sent there

on the job assignment, I had a wife.

The next year I had a daughter.


Here are my three wives,

Chua, my first wife. Ning and Sai.

You're new here.

You must obey them.

No fights are allowed.

I don't like fights.

Yes, sir.

You too, Mekala.

You must obey your step-mother

the same as your own mother.


Anyone who likes Thai flowers

can follow me.

There are lots of flowers here.

We built a mound so

they won't get flooded.

Since we're here, let's see them.

Watch out for snakes!

Are there any here?

Yes, a big cobra.

Count me out!

If you're not afraid of snakes,

follow me.

It's a jungle out her no one

to care for it.

Your housekeeper gave it to me.

For making noise to scare off snake.

That's a sugar cane knife.

Be careful, it's very sharp.

Old Yim was a sugar cane cutter.

The cutters used to play

a gambling game.

No one plays it nowadays.

What kind of flowers do I smell?

Several kinds.

The strongest smell is probably

"kaew" flowers.

It smells familiar.

Not just the flowers

but this Thai house, too.

It seems familiar to me as well.

I'm glad I met you.

You seem to know

a lot about Thai culture.

I'm interested, too.

I probably have to learn from you.

My pleasure.

How can I contact you?

It's easy if you really

want to see me.

Let's go. It's time.

You have to go

see some other places.

I didn't see any snakes.

There is one

but you just didn't see him.

Hurry, grandpa. I'm scared!

Me too!

This afternoon

why did you talk about snakes?

So many people,
