From the back cover: "Ong Bak is the Buddha statue kept in the Nong Pra-du temple in rural Thailand, which is believed to be imbued with magical powers that will keep the village safe. One night, former villager Don cut the head of the statue to win favour with ruthless crime boss Khom Tuan. Ting, an orphaned youngster raised at the temple, determines to go to Bangkok and look for the lost treasure. However, Ting is forced to compete in illegal street fights. His superior skills make him a natural champoin, and he even agrees to throw a deadly fight when he's promised the return of Ong Bak..."

Lomography LC-A+ Camera
Harnessing the best features of the original Lomo LC-A, and rising above it with a host of new capabilities the Lomo LC-A+ is simply the finest, most delightfully unexpected, robust, pocketable, vividly colorful, and soundly addictive snapshot camera of all time. First off, it's got the lighting-fast zone focusing and on-point automatic exposure of the original. Next, our Chinese factory has faithfully & lovingly duplicated the original Russian Minitar 1 32/2.8 lens - yielding the same radiant colors, the knockout contrast, the edge vignetting, the powerful multicoating, and the occasionally temperamental focusing of like the original. On top of that, it now offers a Multiple Exposure switch, expanded film ISO setting to 1600, and a cable release thread.
