Not even a three-hour motion picture could give an adequate impression of Thailand. These seven stories are snapshots of a few phases of the kingdom. An American expatriate seeks employment and love, but what he finds is not what he was looking for. A Thai woman overcomes the habits that almost destroy her marriage. A Thai girl looks for a career and is surprised by what she finds. Another Thai girl overcomes a dismal childhood to achieve resounding success. The American wife of a Thai discovers that she doesn't like paradise. A Thai wife is dissatisfied with her Japanese husband. A young Thai man climbs toward success, using his employers as stepping stones.An appliance store in the city used him whenever a customer bought a stove, washing machine, television, water heater, ... as if he had within himself a wiring diagram that received telepathic messages from the circuitry of electrical machinery.
