What is it about?

They did a terrible job setting up the plot of Chocolate and letting the viewer know what was going on and who was who in my opinion, and so we had to make up our own story about what was going on during various parts of this film as we watched it.

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A kickboxing hero with a difference arises in this action saga from Thailand.

Japanese mobster Masashi (Hiroshi Abe) and his Thai partner and girlfriend, Zin (Ammara Siripong), narrowly escape death at the hands of underworld boss Number 8 (Pongpat Wachirabunjong) and his bodyguard Priscilla (Sirimongkol Iamthuam), but the scuffle has unexpected consequences — Masashi’s superiors order him to return to Japan, and Zin finds she’s pregnant with his child.

Zin raises their daughter, Zen (Yanin Vismitananda), on her own and discovers she’s autistic; one of the few things that helps bring Zen out of her inner world is chocolate, and in time the girl develops a remarkable skill in the martial arts.

When Zin is diagnosed with cancer, the family cannot afford the chemotherapy that could save her life until her friend Moom (Taphon Phopwandee) comes up with a plan — plenty of people still owe Zin money from her days as an outlaw, and with Zen as a candy-fueled enforcer, he might be able to get them to pay up and raise the funds for Zin’s medical bills.

Chokgohlaet (aka Chocolate) was directed by Prachya Pinkaew, who previously made several pictures starring Thai martial arts master Tony Jaa.

Golf World And / Or East World And A Wedding Or Wedding Rehearsal?

Dream 1

My voice recording of this dream mentioned something about my mom being in a parking lot (probably in her automobile), and then something about a place called Golf World and/or East World that was near or where the shopping center is near W Park in the city of D near where Save-A-Lot should be and/or it was in the second dream out in the countryside.

Golf World and East World were possibly two different places that were next to each other but I can not remember, they both possibly had grass and/or parking lots and one or more buildings, but I can not remember.

All that I can remember is that it was day and I was following a group of kids and young adults who were following an overweight woman with medium-dark brownish-color skin with black hair, we were possibly walking through and/or from Golf World and/or East World but I am not sure.

I was younger again, maybe high school age, and I think that my former female classmate AW was with us.

The woman led us to a church and we went inside the church, a young man and young woman with medium-dark brownish-color skin with black hair were here to get married and/or this was their wedding rehearsal, and they were family members of maybe my former classmate AW.

I can not remember what happened other than the woman’s sister (who was already inside the church waiting on us) getting angry with her because she got someone else to do something that I can not remember (it possibly had something to do with the wedding), and I remember that the young man and the young woman either got married or they rehearsed their wedding.

I know that more happened and that more was said, but I can not remember the details.

After this I went to leave the church, my mom drove up in the parking lot to pick up a kid or adult with special needs who was with our group, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place in the countryside, my family and I seemed to be living in a very small community in the countryside, and there was lots of grass and fields and farm land with homemade barbed wire fences separating each yard.

We only had a few neighbors in this small community, but we all seemed pretty close even though we were not related to any of our neighbors.

Golf World and/or East World were possibly in this dream, but I can not remember.

This dream possibly took place over time, maybe days or weeks or longer, and it involved community stuff between my family and the neighbors.

There was possibly a threat in the yard of the neighbor living on the right side of our yard, we possibly had to worry about and deal with that threat, but I can not remember and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,
