Thai cave: The movie
LIKE everyone, I am delighted the 12 young Thai football players and their coach are safe. yet am I the only one with niggling questions about this extraordinary episode?
Why were the lads in an underground cave during the monsoon season? How did they survive for nine days without food? did meditation, led by their coach who’d trained as a monk, really save them? Why were they kept apart from their families afterwards? and why have the foreign volunteer rescuers been so reluctant to speak about the kids’ ordeal.
I’m sure, in time, it will all become clear — most likely in the movie, starring Tom Hanks as a slightly nutty, mystic, Thai footy manager.
