Synopsis

Kong (Pawalit Mongkolpisit), a professional killer, deaf and mute since childhood, carries out his violent and bloody work with a detached, sociopathic coldness - an impersonal revenge on the world. His only response to the assassinations he performs for his employers on the city's toughest streets is silence.

When he meets and befriends Fon (Premsinee Ratanasopha), a shop assistant, he experiences for the first time humanity, warmth and tenderness. Kong now feels there is a chance of redemption and transformation. Faced with a choice he is now unsure of his next move. Does he continue with his detached remote existence or re-invent himself as a participant in society? Can he save himself; can he still be a killer?

Written and directed by Danny Pang and Oxide Pang Chun, BANGKOK DANGEROUS ia a gritty stylish, powerful and fast-paced thriller that lifts the veneer of Bangkok's image and explores the world beyond the temples and tourist sights.
