Recommend...3 stories of damaged people looking for escape
I really enjoyed this show and am baffled by the comments of some previous reviewers. Yes, the characters are flawed. That's the point. We all are.
The show features 3 different story lines of Swedish people who travel to Thailand for a new life: a lonely man looking for a wife; a career-driven mother of two who has neglected her family; and a meek older woman looking for escape from her emotionally abusive marriage.
The Thai setting is quite beautiful and the journey each character goes through ranges from uplifting to tragic; it's a pretty sad story all in all but I loved the scenery, and I loved the music. Recommended.
