    Here is a YT clip of a teaser of the film. The young girl can't listen to her punk rock music.

    I'm trying to imagine what the other considerations were not to air the film.

    They may have decided that an unexpected suicide bombing would just throw the whole festival schedule out of whack.

    perhaps the ongoing violence between Islamist rebels and Buddhists in the south of Thailand?

    It portrayed a female thinking on her own rather than asking her father?

    Great comic book. I'm glad that the movie is animated. I was afraid it was going to be live action.
