A mild-mannered mama’s man gets pressured into being a drug mule while on a trip to Bangkok with his soccer team. When the authorities catch wind of his antics on his way back through customs, he gets thrown into police custody where he has to grit his teeth and hold in the goods…for a week.
It’s also based on a true story, which is insane.
As one could expect from a premise such as this, things do get a bit gnarly down the road. That being said, don’t let it faze you. This thing had me on the edge of my seat and I’m still mighty impressed by how good it was from the get-go onward. Really sharp writing with a dark sense of humor that’s driven by top-notch performances from a whole bunch of people. A very pleasant surprise.
