In the bustling streets of Thailand, a woman named Bee has reached out for legal help through Channel 3. She found herself in a precarious situation which caused her physical injury whilst clashing with her husband’s mistress. Bee is worried that justice may be out of her reach since no official marriage certificate binds her and her husband. Her plea for help appears as a cry out for those with legal acumen to come to her aid along this twisted journey.
Life ventures had seen Bee and her husband spend eleven eventful years together, paving paths side by side as food vendors, specialising in tantalising grilled squid. Their lovable trio of children, a blessing of an eleven-year-old daughter, a five-year-old son, and an infant son of two months, filled their life with joy, chaos and immeasurable love. But Bee’s recent decision to step back from their shared business and devote herself to their newborn saw troubles start to brew beneath the surface.
The harmony that once knitted their lives together had started to fray. The once reliable husband began to stagger home late at night, swaying under the effects of alcohol. Hints of betrayal reared their ugly head in the form of lipstick-stained tissues and cosmetic accessories sprawled around in his car.
A simple trick involving a mobile phone left in the car peeled back the veil around her husband’s betrayal. The hidden device recorded conversations revealing his intimate encounters with a woman who served drinks and song at a local karaoke bar.
Bee, armed with this damning evidence, confronted her husband and his mistress. Her pleas for them to end the affair seemed to be heard, but her husband’s consistency in visiting the mistress told another story. Competition, jealousy, betrayal – the darkness was slowly brewing into a storm.
In an outburst of aggression, Bee found herself in a physical tangle with the mistress at the karaoke bar. An ensuing argument with the husband led to Bee being slapped across the face. The Bangkok Noi Police Station’s inaction to register this domestic abuse further battered her hopes for justice.
Bee’s pain led her deep into the heart of the Bangkok’s Charoen Krung district. Armed with clandestine information from the mobile phone left once more in her husband’s car, she found herself confronting the adulterous duo at a gold shop.
The confrontation escalated quickly, with Bee determinedly hanging on to the car’s door handle as her husband retreated, and eventually climbed on the car to force the couple out. An altercation ensued, wherein Bee was assaulted by her husband who kicked her to the ground, leaving her injured and desolate.
Bee, still living under the same roof as her disloyal husband, reached out to the public and media, hoping for justice, legal aid, and guidance. Her tale, a maelstrom of passion, pain, and perseverance begs the question: when love is on the line, to what lengths will one go to stake a claim to it?
