Synopsis

Martial arts action set in Thailand. When the head of a statue sacred to a village is stolen, young Ting (Tony Raa) is selected by the villagers to travel to Bangkok and rescue the relic in time for an important ceremony that they hope will aleviate the drought in their region. Left on the temple steps as a baby, Ting was raised by the temple monks, who taught him the ancient martial art of muay thai but forbade him to use it in combat. But when Ting enters the seedy underbelly of Bangkok in search of the criminal genius who stole the sacred relic, he is forced to use his considerable martial arts skills to dispatch a host of evil henchman in a race against time to recover the relic before drought and starvation destroys his village.
