Synopsis:  Welcome to an exam-cheating business run by Lynn (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying), a straight-A student who gets the idea for her business after helping Grace (Eisaya Hosuwan) and Pat (Teeradon Supapunpinyo). Grace is a prominent school activist who can’t get the grades she needs. Pat is a filthy-rich boy who believes money can buy anything. Lynn’s business skyrockets and the money starts to flood in as scores of students offer her cold hard cash in exchange for exam answers.

One day, Lynn is offered the opportunity to make millions of Baht. It is Pat and Grace who devise a plan for her to take the STIC test, an international standardized test for students wanting to enroll in the world’s leading universities. The test is scheduled to take place on the same date and time at locations all over the world.

This heist-cum-thriller of Nattawut’s second feature broke all box office records in major cities of Asia this past summer, making more money than DUNKIRK on half the screens.  For her excellent performance, Chutimon “Aokbab” Chuengcharoensukying received the New York Asian Film Festival Screen International Rising Star Award. The film also won the Best Feature award in the Main Competition of the recently past 16th New York Asian Film Festival.  Read the announcement here.
