Mekong Hotel is a portrait of a hotel near the Mekong River in the north-east of Thailand. The river there marks the border between Thailand and Laos. The film shuffles different realms, fact and fiction, expressing the bonds between a vampire-like mother and her daughter, the young lovers and the river. Mekong Hotel—since it was shot at the time of the heavy flooding in Thailand—also weaves in layers of demolition, politics, and a drifting dream of the future.
