Kanitha,一個住在金邊的時代女性,她年輕,能選擇自己喜歡的生活方式。然而她的夢想和母親的期望卻相違背,母親希望女兒可以像傳統女性一樣,早日成婚生兒育女,而Kanitha也因為父親的健康而有所顧慮。家中的矛盾似乎不能改變,但Kanitha從她對父親的回憶中夢見了一個主意……

《向左走向右走》像是一張音樂專輯,包含了可以影響「形式」的歌曲和聲音,如同以家庭、自然和想像為題的搖滾樂曲。

Kanitha, a young, free-spirited Cambodian woman in her 20s, lives in modern-day Phnom Penh, working multiple jobs and choosing to live how she pleases. However, her daydreaming creates tension with her traditional mother, who wants a daughter that will settle down to get married, and Kanitha seems ambivalent to her father's deteriorating health. The family's struggle seems immutable, but Kanitha dreams an idea born from memories of her father. Turn Left Turn Right is structured as an album, with tracks and sounds influencing the form. The film weaves Cambodian rock songs together with motifs of family, nature, and boundless imagination.
