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

really, really bad. Characters extract no empathy, sub-plots and arcs appear utterly irrelevant and the ending, oh my God, the ending. I wont say too much as this might spoil things for those with the stamina to stay for the duration but I am sure the young teenage lads were fighting for prime position. The whole thing was a complete waste of time and probably one of the all time worst films I have ever seen. My wife, who is prone to falling asleep when films don't grab her attention, stayed awake because she could not believe how bad it was.
I know there will be the "arty" types who will post comments about how haunting it was and how any contrary comment comes from the Philistines amongst us but please, please, avoid this film if you value your time. It was and is, absolute tosh.
