Summary
"Tropical malady" is two distinct halves, divided into two complementary and wholly necessary pieces. The first half is a love story. A young soldier, Keng (Banlop ̜Lōm̜nōi), is assigned to patrol the Thai forests, and he falls for a country boy, Tong (Sakdā ̄Kæobūadī), a worker in a rural Thai village's ice plant. In the second half, that love story has been swallowed by a folk tale, in which the spirit of a man has found its way into the body of a tiger. A soldier patrols the forest, looking for a villager who has disappeared while a voice-over relates the story of a shaman who has the power to turn himself into a tiger. Is the soldier Keng? Is the missing villager--or, stranger yet, the tiger--Tong?
