Dawan, a young village girl who lives in Thailand, wins a scholarship
to study in a city school. Her brother, Kwai, places second and is
initially jealous, causing a rift between the two previously-close
siblings. This hostility is further exacerbated by Dawan's father, who
feels that the city is no place for a female. Dawan faces obstacles at
every turn, and eventually overcomes these obstacles and proves to
herself and to others that she is fully capable of handling the
scholarship and the responsibility it entails.
