Little did he realize that all this was just too good to be true, that somebody was about to erase the next 14 years of his life. In those 14 years, Bala went from civilized human to savage. Suddenly set free, he spends the next 4 days seeking out the truth behind his captivity through the streets and waterways of Bangkok but he slowly comes to realize that his freedom is part of an even more sinister design.
