A couple are looking for their child who was lost in the tsunami - their search takes them to the dangerous Thai-Burmese waters, and then into the jungle, where they face unknown but horrifying dangers.
The young police man Vincent is the best in his class, and denies to be recruited to the special forces. But when the corrupt Milo manages to get a grip on him, his life is turned into a living nightmare.
In Phuket Island, Thailand, the architect Paul Bellmer and his wife Jeanne lost their son Joshua in a tsunami six months ago. Jeanne is disturbed and has not accepted the loss of her beloved son. While watching some footages from Myanmar (former Burma), Jeanne is convinced that a boy wearing a Manchester United shirt in a poor village is Joshua, and Paul accepts to seek out their son in the sea gypsies camp. They hire the trafficker Thaksin Gao and they travel in the boat of master Sonchai to search Joshua. After a series of weird incidents, Sonchai leaves the trio in an abandoned village. They have to walk through the jungle where they face a journey to hell. Written by

I love suspense, thriller and horror movies. I saw the trailers for this movie when it was in theaters, and it's trailers often came on from movies I rented. Sadly the trailer is the best thing about this movie. There is no redeeming quality to the lead actress. I wanted to slap and shake her throughout the film. Several things happen that are so implausible that you have to keep saying to yourself, "It's only a movie - that makes no sense." I was so intrigued by the description if this film. The idea has a lot of potential, but the way it's handled is a bore. We laughed when we should have been scared and talked over the "scary" part. There is no suspense or thrill, and the only horror is that I sat through the whole thing.
