Jan Dara grows up in a house lacking in love but abundant in lust. He quickly picks up the sinful way of life of the man who married his mother after she became pregnant from being raped. His 'father's' mistress welcomes the young boy into her literal bosom. Wanting badly to know his real father, Jan leaves the house, only coming back after Khun Luang's daughter falls pregnant out of wedlock. Jan does a favor to his 'father' by marrying her, even though he is deeply in love with the mistress. The truth about his birth, as Jan will later learn, is as confusing and messed up as his present life and the lives of those around him. Edit Translation

BE WARNED! This film is NOT for the faint of heart, or those easily disturbed by sex/rape/abuse etc.

Let me start off by saying that the acting in this movie was pretty fantastic. It was great enough that I actually felt bad for Jan Dara's circumstances and at times was rooting for him to get out of his messed up life. It was also good enough that I despised pretty much his entire family to the point where I didn't see how he could treat them so well (sans a few pretty disturbing scenes toward the ending of the film that I won't discuss because it will spoil it for you). What I will say is that the story of Jan Dara and his screwed up slice of crazy he calls family; is pretty disturbing. For a movie where A LOT of sex takes place there probably isn't a single scene that seems sensual or enjoyable at all. You see Jan Dara grow for a little boy born into horrible circumstances grow to become the the spitting image of the man he hated most; if not worse than him. This film is like a train wreck; it's gruesome and gut wrenching and yet you can't look away!
