This film follows a group of high school and university students during their school breaks and the interplay about the relationships they develop or don’t.

There are four threads to follow in this film. 1) Pu (Charlie Trairat, Dorm, 2006) and Mai (Sirachuch Chienthaworn) are best friends and fall for the same girl, Nana (Ungsumalynn Sirapatsakmetha, Bangkok Traffic Love Story, 2009); 2) class geek Jo (Ratchu Surachalas, Seasons Change, 2006) is in love with a popular girl C (Chutima Teepanat, Seasons Change, 2006; Dear Galileo, 2009); 3) Oh Lek (Focus Jirakul) is wild about Taiwanese pop sensation Didi (Lu Ting Wei), 4) and Hern (Chantawit Thanasewee, Hello Stranger, 2010; ATM, 2012) is thinking of cheating on his girlfriend Nuan (Thaniya Ummaritchoti) when he meets Japanese tourist Aoi (Sora Aoi, AV model and actress).

Director Sugmakanan admits that he was inspired by the style and format of the British romantic comedy Love Actually 2003, but he points out that relationships in Asian culture are not comparable to those in Western culture. The film saw national release in 163 theaters and earned an unprecedented (for GTH films) 10 million baht on its first day, totaling 34.1 million baht in its opening weekend. It earned a total of 80 million baht in the box office and was the third-largest grossing Thai film in 2008.
