Vicenarian Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss. Excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
In Bangkok, in a low-budget hotel called "Heaven", the fates of four guests are interconnected due to a theft in a room: Sean, a paranoid English drug dealer, who is dealing with a powerful local drug lord; the British psychologist Rosa, who is grieving the loss of her son and conducting research with poor children in Thailand; a seriously wounded killer, hired to kill the mobster; and Wit, an abused thirteen-year-old bellboy, who steals from the guests. In the end, we see that it is almost impossible to control life and, sometimes, a subtle incident may lead to fatality.Written by

"The Tesseract is a hypercube unraveled." "When a square unravels to a live, two dimensions become one." "When a cube unravels to a cross, three dimensions become two." "When a hypercube unravels to the tesseract, four dimensions become three."
In fact the tesseract is a 4 dimensional cube (term by Charles Howard Hinton, mathematician and science fiction writer) and this concept tries to introduce us into more than three dimensions.
This movie is a strange mixture of Matrix (special effects), Kill Bill (slow camera scenes with Tomoyasu Hotei's "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" style) and Memento (playing with time, backward and forward).
Four strange and different characters reunited in a hotel of Bangkok with nothing in common. Really nothing in common? The first minutes promise an excellent film that does not convince in any moment. It's a pity, could have been magnificent.
