That night she drinks too much again and has a slight car accident. She meets a young man called Lung for the first time. He helps her to start again her damaged car. Her father confiscated her car because it is severely damaged as she was drunk. She has to take Bangkok public transport (boat, motorbike taxi...) to reach office as taxicab is too expensive. She meets Lung again when she takes the Bangkok Skytrain. He works in Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) company at night time. She sells solar cells at daytime and has a crazy Japanese boss.
