Drought has shriveled the rice crop, the landlord wants his exorbitant share, and the government has crushed the recent protest at Thammasart University in Bangkok. What can Jinda do but put in the new rice crop herself and hope for Ned's help, if and when he returns? Christina Moore's reading is alive with the tension building inside both Jinda and Thailand. Her voice is youthful and innocent, yet also powerfully assured, perfect for the young woman whose father was the village headman. Yet it's also a controlled and balanced medium for the range of powerful emotions building inside Jinda: love, anger at injustice, sorrow and finally hope for a better future, both for herself and Thailand.
