Synopsis

In 1966, a USIS mobile film unit, a CIA-supported itinerant film troupe consists of four Thai officers and one American team leader, travels to outlying villages in northeast Thailand to screen anti-communist propaganda films. In the middle of the trip, at a border village, the team and the locals found a mutilated dead body in the Mekong River. While the USIS team begins investigating in an area experiencing tension between the Thai authorities and the communists, Thai people today would realize that the dead body resembles that of an exiled Thai dissident, a self-proclaimed revolutionary who has gone missing in the present day.
