Summary

The director's feature-length debut is loosely based on cases of foreigners arrested in Asian countries for smuggling drugs. One case, which directly inspired the making of the film, was the arrest of Czech tourist Emil Novotný, sentenced in Thailand in 1995. The film's theme is a story on guilt and dramatic punishment, as well as on a drastic turning point in a person's life
