Lunch takes place in the course of an afternoon, when life seems nice and easy. The protagonist, a teenage girl, skips school to lunch with her good friend, a teenage boy. Both are at a special place in their lives, where things are changing - and they are aware of it. She wants life to remain the same, and yet she is curious about life itself. Despite her fears, she welcomes the changes with open arms and with the kind of graceful optimism found almost exclusively in teenagers.

Born in Thailand in 1976, Anocha Suwichakornpong, also known as “Mai”, spent the nineties living in England where she received her BA and MA. In 2006, she graduated from an MFA film programme at Columbia University, New York. That same year, Anocha attended the Berlinale Talent Campus. Her feature-length script, The White Room, was among the fifteen scripts chosen to participate in their Script Clinic.
