Phoon (Asda Panichkul), 36, a finance and investment manager, and Yuke (Nat Sakdatorn), 33, a graphic illustrator, have been in a serious relationship for 13 years. The couple has adopted an abandoned child named Butr (Aritach Pipattangkul) since he was a baby. When the child goes into grade one at school, he is made fun of not having a mother by his school friends, which makes the once-specialty that he has two fathers undesirable. Consequently, the son begins to ask about his own mother, and that causes some discomfort to the fathers to answer. Following the advent of Rattiya (Sinjai Plengpanich), the director of Children’s Right Protection Organization, everything in the family is changed. Her suggestions and the dig-up for Butr’s background causes even more tension to Phoon and Yuke. The couple doesn’t have so many options but to choose what is the best for their son, even though they may be in despair. Add Synopsis In Portuguese

One of the best history of the gay genre!
A remarkable film portrays well the hard life of homosexuals of whom they are still relatively few in number. Fortunately, where others choose not to go, writer-director Palatpol Mingpornpichit takes pride in launching himself into the extreme film, showing the emotional ups and downs of homosexual parents by raising a child in an environment that is often far from acceptable by the society. However, it is only the backdrop to a film that deals specifically with the father's reaction to his son's always inquisitive mind about his biological mother and, moreover, as an unexpected visit by Miss Rattiya of the Organization for the Protection of the Rights of the Child.
The film beautifully portrays what genuinely conveys the deep love that both parents hold for each other and for their child, who clearly crave only the best, being sweet, albeit somewhat simplistic, but equally thrilling, while the narrative is not afraid of playing homophobia in a country where same-sex couples still have to fight for the right to marry and where gay parenting is viewed by many as a social stigma. Great movie!
