    • Synopsis
    • The movie portrayed the biography of Reverend Brother Hilaire (Jason Young) through a present day character, Pongsatorn (Phrunyoo Rojanawuttitham)
      Living an average life of a typical Primary School teacher of a well known Catholic School in a province of Thailand, Pongsatorn has been teaching Thai language classes for almost 5 years. In order to get a pay rise, he decided to continue his education in the Master Degree level, majoring in Literature. His thesis was the ultimate key to success in achieving his goal, when the name 'F. Hilaire' popped up in his mind.
      F. Hilaire was a name of a westerner, Fronçois Touvenet Hilaire, a young Reverend Brother who arrived in Siam some 100 years ago. F.Hilaire sat down to learn Thai with his Thai students, and he didn’t only develop the skill to read and speak Thai, but mastered the language to the point that he could write a Thai language textbook, called “Darunsuksa”.
      “Darunsuksa” is still used in schools a century later. Even Pongsatorn has also used these text books for teaching his students.
      Soon after having learnt more about F. Hilaire's life in depth, the way Pongsatorn sees the world will change forever..
