Nakorn-Sawan is the story of a family taking a journey together to accompany the recently departed to "heaven". Parallel to this, there is a documentary of the director's father, who lives alone in a rubber plantation and a portrait of her mother who passed away in 2017. After being away from home for 5 years, Aoey comes back to Nakorn Sawan with her family. The recent death of a beloved effects the living ones. Pak Nam Po, the river in the city, is believed to be the path to send her mother’s cremains to the after life -- the heaven, they say. That morning, she is boarding the same boat along the river with her family, her father, her old friend, herself, and even her past. Until the end of the day, fliction and documentary drifts along the river endlessly.
