17 years ago, Homo erectus fossils were found at the archaeological site in Lampang. Nowadays, nobody cares about this scientific discovery anymore, except for some locals who occasionally use it for spiritual activities. But one evening when an outdoor cinema truck screens a film at the site as an offering to an ancient ghost, something unexpected happens. The film was produced by Kick the Machine Films, the studio of acclaimed artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
