Storyline

Exactly how much risk would you take to save your brother? For Van Nguyen the answer was whatever it takes and the devastating consequence of his attempt to traffic heroin from Cambodia to Australia via a change of planes in Singapore was that the 396 grams of drugs that he was discovered carrying was enough to incur the death penalty - 26 times over. Written by Stephen Corvini

"I see it. This is the spot"
8 August 2013 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Here's one of the best two part dramas, I've seen in quite a while. This one sadly doesn't have a happy end. It has an all so grim one, that is haunting in the last number of disturbing, upsetting scenes. When learning of Van Nyghen's reasons for doing what he did, it wasn't so he could profit. This poor innocent boy with no arrest record, made one fatal mistake, that subsequently ending his life. We follow his story through flashbacks, to his arrest, and then the start of his three year nightmare. Remy is so believable, displaying many levels of emotion to his character, it's an impressive piece of professional acting. I truly believe he got where this character was coming from, as if almost watching the real deal. Wenham is just top form as Nyghen's lawyer where Brown lends solid support as Wenham's colleague, barrister, while Karvan too is solid as Wenham's wife. This effective real life drama paints a grim and stark reality to the fate of the drug smuggler, where in this this case, this one mistake, earned an unjustful execution. Some of the flashbacks of Nhygen in happier times threw sad tones to the film, where we so much wish, no more Nyghen that he could go back in time that instant. Some other flashbacks show the real sort of scum Van was working for, for when he tried to back out, threats were made upon his family. These are the real ones who should be executed. That admittance that had Van saying "I'm not doing this for you", was the key moment to the show. Only criticism is in the first part, the story took a while to get to where it was going as up to the point of Nyghen's arrest. Highly recommended.
