The 20-something Tuck Chai meets a high school girl Ying through internet chat. They have a sexual relationship that is soon discovered by the under-aged girl’s parents. They threaten to press charges against the boy as sex with a minor constitutes rape. The boy’s mother peace-talks with the girl’s parents and a monetary settlement is agreed. Even when the boy has successfully raised the money to pay them off, the girl’s parents still insist in suing him. The boy, fearing the impending jail sentence, asks the girl out secretly to talk things over. It has been said that a little fear would curdle love into hate. By this time, there is only fear, frustration, anger, and distrust between them. What remains of the young couple’s confused love can no longer be salvaged.
