Synopsis

Tense psychological thriller directed by Oxide Pang, based on the bestselling novel by Alex Garland ('The Beach'). Drug courier Sean (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) is sweating it out in his room at Bangkok's sleazy run-down Heaven Hotel, watching over a consignment of narcotics awaiting pick-up by a local czar's henchmen. Down the hall, psychologist and recently-bereaved mother Rosa (Saskia Reeves) is interviewing local youngsters as part of her research - while in the room below Sean's, a mysterious female assassin is slowly dying of wounds sustained during a bungled hit. These three disparate lives are all touched by Wit (Alexander Rendell), a streetwise kid employed by the hotel as a bellboy. Using a labyrinthine, non-linear narrative, the film shows how the destinies of this unlikely quartet collide - with violent and tragic consequences.
