Jan Dara

"Asia's erotic phenomenon!"

In 1930's Siam, a boy named Jan lives in a dysfunctional family where sex plays a huge impact on their lives. After his mother died during childbirth his father claims that he is a cursed child. Though a wealthy man, Jan's father is also abusive. He is a womanizer and has sex with many women in front of a portrait of his late wife. Jan's mother's younger sister is brought in to be his caretaker. Jan becomes jealous when his father begins having sexual relations with her after realizing that he himself has feelings for her. His Aunt and Father end up conceiving a little girl who becomes his pride and joy. He teacher's her to hate Jan calling him "bastard Jan". Jan's Aunt Waad begins to despise Kaew (her daughter) and treats Jan as her own son.

One of Jan's father's girlfriends moves into the guest house and begins to teach Jan the ways of love. He is later framed for the rape of his sister Kaew while she had been actually been having sexual relations with one of the maid's sons. When Kaew is found to be pregnant with her father's child, despite his punishment Jan is asked to come home and is forced into a marriage with Kaew in an attempt to protect the family's reputation. He only agrees to marry her if he gets the deed to the estate as a form of payback against his father for the abuse he encountered during his childhood.

When the baby is born it has the same genetic disfiguring as Trisomy 21 or down sysdrome and Kaew curses the child. She enters a lesbian relationship with Jan's father's girlfriend and when Jan finds out he orders that she gives him his own child. He forces himself upon her several times. She refuses to have the child and performs a self abortion with the help of her lesbian lover.

Following in his father's footsteps, after having sexual relations with a maid in front of his mother's portrait Jan wonders why he can not escape the viscous cycle of sexual abuse that he had learned from his father. It is later found out that Jan was actually the product of a gang rape that his mother had gone through.
