He grew up in an English seacoast village, filled with visions of honor and duty, which when put to the test in Africa, he fails to live up to. Unable to return home, he moves on, but each fresh start seems thwarted by ghosts from the past. A shipping disaster seals his fate in the Philippines. He escapes to Thailand, seeking solace in the streets of Patpong and Pattaya. A solace which turns to despair as he feels a trap snapping shut his senses and his free will. He seeks refuge down the coast; a native hut; a pretty Chinese girl; an old boat; but Toy, his Pattaya girl, finds out and upsets his plans. His dreams shattered, he creates a spiteful revenge and flees in his boat, ending up on a mountainous island off Cambodia. Here his simple fisherman's life is rudely interrupted by the unexpected appearance of a former friend turned enemy. Fuelled by the arrival of Toy, his sense of reason turns to blind rage and he sets out on a trail of destruction with inevitable tragic results.
