When someone dies a horrible death, their spirit becomes confused and angry. It becomes 'Vinyan'.
Unable to accept the loss of their son in the 2005 tsunami, Jeanne (Emmanuelle Beart) and Paul Belhmer (Rufus Sewell) have remained in Phuket (Thailand) after the catastrophe. Desperately clinging to the fact that his body was never recovered, Jeanne has convinced herself that their son was kidnapped by traffickers in the ensuing chaos and that her son is still alive. Paul is sceptical, but cannot bring himself to shatter his wife's last hope.
Bribing the sinister Mr Gao to take them by boat to the pirate-infested jungles of the Thai/Burmese border, the traumatized couple embark on a quest that will plunge them through paranoia and betrayal, ever deeper into an alien universe, a supernatural realm where the dead are never truly dead, and where nightmares, obsession and horrifying reality converge...
