The military coup to oust Thailand's former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in 2006 ignited a political maelstrom that polarized this tolerant Buddhist society, turning the streets of Bangkok into a battlefield of ideological and class struggle. Supporters and detractors of Thaksin clashed, and the military cracked down on both sides. The gratuitous violence dominated the headlines for four years, as the world witnessed countless lives lost and maimed.
HERO follows the lives of two women on opposing sides of the conflict but who share a common fate. A husband killed in a grenade attack and a son gunned down in a military attack. HERO is a story of courage in the face of despair and a divided country united in its grief.
