What can you do to change your fate?

On the morning of the annual military draft lottery, Oat reflects on his childhood, to the time when his older brother Ek faced the same exercise. While the parents of his wealthy boyfriend are able to maneuver their son out of the draw, Ek, part of the lower class, has no options. Unable to convince his brother to do whatever he can to change his fate, young Oat takes matters into his own hands, resulting in unexpected circumstances.
