As conflict and political turmoil take over Bangkok, Laila, her brother Zugood and his friend Toy, set off on a road trip heading south to visit their long-lost aunt, leading them to a land stranger than any they could ever have imagined. Laila is a smart and confident woman, but what makes her feel different is the fact that she belongs to the 5% Muslim minority in a predominantly Buddhist country. She has always felt caught between two worlds: one of traditional Muslim values as impressed upon her by her family and the community in which she grew up, and of being part of a minority in the ‘global village’ of Bangkok.
