Suay is a crime TV show, but unlike any other. Hard-boiled and satirical, it is a staggeringly baroque pastiche tending to be a shocking, a controversial piece of work.

Raw, shocking and wickedly delightful; the perfect walk on the wild side for people with open minds and broad tastes. Its about a kathoey detective: Lola and the permanent ambiguity of her world. In her world NOTHING is what it seems.

Show summary
Lola has left behind her turbulent past as a violent manly private detective to almost bury it completely, and transformed into an extraordinary attractive woman she dedicates her days to what she likes best: being wanted by many men, dancing and enjoying sex. But one night everything changes with the mysterious disappearance of Carly, companion of the bar and her best friend forever.

Lola receives a terrible gift – an ear of her friend Carly in a luxury jewelry case – and
she has no choice but to dust off her pistol and skills and start searching for her friend through the dark corners of Bangkok’s crazy nights.

Through the next episodes Lola will intensify Carly’s search, facing bizarre characters in the most surreal situations. Nothing is dangerous enough for Lola as she needs to find her dearest friend.

At the same time, her turbulent past and the shadow of a crime she tried to hide is going after her steps, every time closer and closer…

My name is Panos Kotzathanasis and I am Greek. Being a fan of Asian cinema and especially of Chinese kung fu and Japanese samurai movies since I was a little kid, I cultivated that love during my adolescence, to extend to the whole of SE Asia. Starting from my own blog in Greek, I then moved on to write for some of the major publications in Greece, and in a number of websites dealing with (Asian) cinema, such as Taste of Cinema, Hancinema, EasternKicks, Chinese Policy Institute, and of course, Asian Movie Pulse. in which I still continue to contribute. In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres.
