Directed by first-time feature director Chayanop Boonprakob,[2] this film stars teenage actors Jirayu Laongmanee, Pachara Chirathivat, Thawat Pornrattanaprasert, and Nattasha Nauljam.[3] The film follows the antics of three secondary school students who form a rock band to impress girls.[3] Despite their efforts, their band plays poorly and the members regularly end up as losers.[3]
