Oncle Boonmee souffre d’une insuffisance rénale aigüe et décide de finir ses jours auprès des siens à la campagne. Étrangement, les fantômes de sa femme décédée et de son fils disparu lui apparaissent et le prennent sous leurs ailes. Méditant sur les raisons de sa maladie, Boonmee va traverser la jungle avec sa famille jusqu’à une grotte au sommet d’une colline – le lieu de naissance de sa première vie…


Suffering from acute kidney failure, Uncle Boonmee has chosen to spend his final days surrounded by his loved ones in the countryside. Surprisingly, the ghost of his deceased wife appears to care for him, and his long lost son returns home in a non-human form. Contemplating the reasons for his illness, Boonmee treks through the jungle with his family to a mysterious hilltop cave – the birthplace of his first life…
