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

This movie was fantastic! From beginning to end it draws you in and holds on tight! It is the story of a husband and wife whose son is lost to them in the tsunami. The mother comes to believe that her son is still alive. They then begin an odyssey across the darkest and most desolate areas of Burma.
Anyone who has ever loved a child will understand the depth a parent will go through to save them. Initially the movie takes us with them on their painful quest to find their lost boy. But soon the searching parents become lost in their own struggle. The ultimate ending is gripping and horrifying, yet understandable on a very basic human level. You must give the movie a little time. Sometimes following their search can seem drag you into their hopelessness. But soon enough, the true purpose of their quest is understood.
