Viyada is a lovely young actor longing to break out of Thailand's soap-opera ghetto -and to break away from her husband, Jerome, a wealthy foreigner who has become brainwashed by a charismatic cult leader. A chance encounter in a hospital parkade brings together Viyada and Guy, a mysterious man with a sick mother. Sensing an opportunity to earn a major windfall, Guy offers to help rid Viyada of Jerome- but the cost may prove far greater than either anticipates.
