She came to Bangkok from Buri Ram when she was eighteen, working in a Patpong Bar, going to school, sending money back home to Mom and Dad.  Now twenty and going on fifty, she wonders where she will end up.  Back in the house on stilts in Roi Et, destroyed and dead in a Bangkok slum before she's thirty, or living in suburban Los Angeles and driving her kids around in a Mercedes.
