Mindfulness and Murder (Sop-Mai-Ngeap) is an award-winning feature film based on a series of murder mystery novels by former Bangkok Post writer Nick Wilgus. When a homeless boy living at the youth shelter run by a Buddhist monastery turns up dead, the Abbot recruits Father Ananda, a former policeman, to investigate the case. He discovers all is not well at this urban monastery in the heart of Bangkok. Together with his dogged assistant, an orphaned boy named Jak, Father Ananda uncovers a startling series of clues that eventually exposes the motivation behind the crime and leads him to the murderer.
