What a story...

The production values are low, there are quite a few unnecessary scenes - but, what a story.

There is much to admire about this production...limited funds, unlimited talent.


The(ir) Blurb...

Based on the real life story of Parinya Charoenphol, a Muay Thai boxer who underwent a sex change operation to become a woman. The movie chronicles her life from a young boy who likes to wear lipstick and flowers to her sensational career as a kickboxer - whose specialty is ancient Muay Thai boxing (moves which she can execute expertly with grace) - to finally confronting her own sexual identity, which leads to her sex change op.
