Sa was sent to Bangkok from her village when she was just 15. After three years of working in a factory for 3 dollars a day, she decided to become an escort girl in order to support her family. Four years later, in small lobby of a dark hotel, she met me and I invited her to be the subject of this film. Weaving between documentary and fiction, my vision is to create a personal landscape of Sa, whose ambitions, experience, and optimism is shared by many impoverished young women who are faced with the same hard choice. This film is not a sob story about her life. It is her anthem- her way of sharing with me, her hopes, dreams, and fears. Written by Anonymous
