          In rural Cambodia, spirited 14-year-old Chakra (Sam Heng) works the rice fields with his family. He yearns for independence and seeks out a local broker who can get him paid work in a Thai factory. Without telling his family, Chakra travels to Bangkok to make his fortune. Chakra ...secretly journeys across the border and finally arrives in Thailand. But there he and his new friend Kea (Mony Ros, Hex) realise the broker has lied to them. Both Chakra and Kea, along with other Cambodians and Burmese, are sold to a fishing captain as slaves. They are trapped at sea indefinitely, trawling fish 22 hours a day, surviving on just a handful of cold rice. Captain Rom Ran (Thanawut Kasro, The Cave) quickly weeds out those slaves weakened by the conditions or trying to escape, and throws them overboard. The trawler sells its catch and restocks its supplies without going to land, making escape impossible. As fellow slaves are tortured and murdered around them, Kea begins to lose his mind. When his only ally is killed, Chakra looks to Rom Ran to understand what it will take to be free. With hope and humanity dwindling, Chakra decides to take control of the trawler.

What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.

So begins a tale that stretches over a number... of years, filled with unexpected joys and heartbreaks; Marianne will remerge into his life, as will Eva (a radiant Lily-Rose Depp), the impetuous younger sister of the man he was abandoned for. Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players, this beguiling tale, co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrire (Belle de jour, Cyrano de Bergerac), effortlessly navigates through the bric--brac of loves and secrets with a winning, New Wave-esque sensibility; Paris streets and cafs appear almost magically unchanged since Truffauts 1960s. However its Garrels carefully considered yet light touch that charms and captivates, leaving audiences feeling an enduring sense of satisfaction.
