Ton, a Bangkok architect comes to the rural community of Takua Pa in South Thailand, in order to supervise rebuilding work in the wake of the devastation caused by the 2004 tsunami. He chooses to stay in a small, rundown hotel owned by the shy Thai-Chinese Na who is bringing up her gangster brother's child. The two tentatively embark on a relationship, but Na's brother Wit does not take kindly to the news... Tension and suspense abound as we witness the development of their passion against the backdrop of a wounded landscape and a bruised population.
