A humorous play about the trials and errors of Thai, Filipino, and Japanese people who share their countries with one another.
 

A young man is investigating the actual conditions of ‘Retire-men’, or Japanese people who move to southeast Asian countries. What lies behind their seemingly carefree and peaceful second lives? Then there are the people who struggle to accept “Retire-men”, and the harsh realities facing those who cross borders to find employment.

Can we all acknowledge our differences and live together?

Grantees: Narumol Thammapruksa, Nikorn Sae Tang, Yayoi Shimizu, Yoji Sakate
