Stories that revolve around the serial death of teachers in a Thai countryside town, where an elementary school, a crocodile pond, cha-cha music and the afterlife become entangled.

Captivating succession of mysterious and everyday life scenes in different social contexts connected by health and care issues, Enduring Body deals with survival and eternity in an age of artificial reproduction of the body. With humor, tenderness and political concern, Ukrit Sa-nguanhai plays with the limits of life and humanity. He blurs ordinary realism with a rich spectrum of supernatural interferences, challenging our senses and perceptions in a hypnotic way.
