Excellent at his job as a policeman, Tul will see his entire world come crumbling down when he is blackmailed by a politician. Accused of murder, the model policeman passes over to the other side of the mirror and decides to become a hit man. But his particular descent into hell doesn’t end here: after getting shot in the head and coming out of a coma afterwards, Tul starts to consider the essence of his life. A tense and violent film noir, the latest film from the always exquisite Pen-ek Ratanaruang portrays a world, the world of present-day Thailand, where law isn’t the same thing as justice, where no one is free of guilt.
