A tough, stubborn and overly-opinionated grandmother in her 70s named Parn lives with her son and his family. Her personality is too much for some, especially her daughter-in-law who collapses from the stress. The family decide to send Parn off to a nursing home. This upsets Parn who takes a long walk. While waiting for a bus home, she gets drawn by a mysterious light into a photographic portrait parlour, where she ends up having her picture taken. When she steps out, she finds that she has turned into her 20-year-old self again. At first stunned, she soon sees it as second chance to live out her youth and pursue her dreams of being a singer.
If the plot sounds familiar then you won’t be surprised to read that this is the Thai remake of the Korean film, “Miss Granny” (2014). It follows the same story but remains fresh and funny thanks to its exuberant cast.
