A young boy Matrix Naovaratpong wishes for a sister. His parents Nareerat and Sahatorn think about it and they decide to have another child nick named Einz. Unfortunately her life is cut short at two years of age when she develops brain cancer.

Einz goes through treatment and surgery to no avail. However, during this time the father Sahatorn, who runs a laser factory in Thailand and who has a deep interest in science, decides two things to do one: research cancer and two: to research cryogenics.

After much research Sahatorn decides to not only go into cancer research but also to go ahead with cryogenics. He speaks with his wife, son and family hoping they will get on board with the idea.

Hope Frozen takes a look back at this time in the family’s life and their decision to preserve Einz brain and head then in the time after the cryogenics process on Einz has already taken place.
