BFFE - Three Marks of Existence

M, a young man whose troubles finding a job and with his girlfriend lead him to blame bad karma from his previous life, decides to go on a pilgrimage to the four major holy sites of Buddha: Lumbini (Buddha’s birthplace), Sarnath (where Buddha delivered his first teaching), Bodh Gaya (the place of Buddha’s Enlightenment) and Kushinara (the place of Buddha's nirvana).

He hopes to gain merit and turn his life around. On the way he meets various people that shape his understanding of Buddhism: Uncle Kamol, a faithful old Thai man searching for refuge from a painful past; Ayako, a young Japanese woman with a backpack and a mysterious smile searching for an answer to questions she doesn't understand; and Jane, a hipster guy, who seems to have everything M. ever wanted, but who still is not satisfied.In the end M will have to take another journey in his mind to face the source of his suffering: himself.Q&A with director Gunparwitt Phuwadolwisid(Source: BFFE)
