Synopsis: The owner of a guesthouse wants to close his place and discharge the only employee Mong because of the decline of business during COVID. However, he is actually a good employer because although there have been months without any guest, he paid Mong his salary on time. Mong is very grateful and decides to take this opportunity to upgrade the service of the guesthouse. The owner does not want to fire Mong but Mong accidentally overheard that the owner has such thoughts one day. Mong understands that decision, but also shares his feels with the owner: the pandemic has taken so much away from the Thai people, but he can still see the beauty of the country that cannot be taken away: people’s smile, hospitality and generosity. The owner in the end changes his mind and wants to get this through together with Mong.

Momng na jae is a winner of the “New-Normal Short Film Contest” under the concept of “Charming Thai lifestyle in a New-Normal Era” which is the collaborative project between Thai Media Fund and Thai Film Director Association.

The project’s objectives are
