A young woman embarks on a journey that sets her on allocation course with political and spiritual forces of the land she once thought was familiar to her. Laila and her brother set out on road trip to the south of Thailand, a muslim-predominant region plagued by outbreaks of violence and official mistrusts. Tormented by the mystery of own origin, she reaches an island off the Thai coast where she discovers that her identity is as ambiguous as that of the country she calls home.
