In October 1976, thousands of student activists at Thammasat University in Bangkok were attacked by Thai state forces while protesting the return of a former military dictator. By the Time It Gets Dark examines this brutal incident by mixing flashbacks, interviews with former demonstrators, and restaged events. The narrative breaks down as the film progresses, presenting a fragmented, multilayered story that underscores the capricious nature of memory.
