A 2009 Thai action film starring [[{{Film/Chocolate}} Yanin "Jeeja" Vismistananda]]

Deu, a travelling musician, has been [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned by her family]], and is kicked out of her band after attacking her cheating boyfriend. After the split up she is nearly kidnapped, but is saved by Sanim, who is part of a group who are trying to stop woman being kidnapped as part of a human trafficking ring...by kicking ass.

After blackmailing the group into training her in their art of Meyraiyuth (by threatening to [[SeriousBusiness destroy all their bottles of booze]]) she joins in with the ass-kicking, all the while uncovering more secrets about the trafficking and about her new companions.
