Middle-aged Japanese expat journalist Nanbu (Yosuke Eguchi) is stationed in Thailand and when he’s told that kids are being sold on the black market for their organs he’s initially suspicious but soon he sniffs out a real story. Cut to: Aoi Miyazaki as fresh-faced Keiko who has come to Thailand to work for an NGO. Her Thai colleagues label her a poverty tourist, and they’re not wrong. She crosses paths with Nanbu when they’re tipped off about a child sex brothel in Northern Thailand where kids are “processed”: some sold to tourists who have come to Thailand for a cheap organ transplants, the others sold to tourists who have come to Thailand for a roll in the hay with an eight-year-old.
This film goes all the way down to hunt one of the most terrible crimes and sins in our existence. The setting is actual Thailand and Myanmar (Burma). Everything is seen through the eyes of a professional writer for the Tokyo Times living in Bangkok, a naive Japanese bachelor just arrived from the West, a NGO officer, and some very dark characters with their own nightmares to be revealed. As the news reporter tries to pry open a monstrous operation going on in Bangkok that smuggles children from Myanmar and collects some more in Thailand to sell their bodies to sexual tourism, he discovers that this is just but the tip of the iceberg. Organ trading is routine between a prominent physician in a prestigious hospital in Bangkok and a secret mafia that operates in Chiangrai, but here, the story takes a turn with no escape and the plot (as in the original novel by Sogil Yan) gets as dark as it can get.
Brutal, convincing, horrifying, and extremely sad. Shot on real locations that transpire the hardships, smells and anxieties of a theme that is the rotten soul of the darkest secrets and the brightest light of humankind.
