Storyline

Soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a temporary clinic in a former school. The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier with no family visitors. Jen befriends young medium Keng who uses her psychic powers to help loved ones communicate with the comatose men. Doctors explore ways, including colored light therapy, to ease the mens' troubled dreams. Jen discovers Itt's cryptic notebook of strange writings and blueprint sketches. There may be a connection between the soldiers' enigmatic syndrome and the mythic ancient site that lies beneath the clinic. Magic, healing, romance and dreams are all part of Jen's tender path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her.

Long and boring, only lasted and hour.
29 October 2017 | by indanoiseSee all my reviews

Don't know what the director is trying to tell. This is so monotone, tedious and boring that made me fall in a state of somnolence similar to the one his actors are suffering.

Continuous cuts to unconnected scenes, long scenes of nothing happening.

Not for me.
