(GB/France/Belgium, 2008, 92 minutes)

A European couple who lost their son in the 2005 tsunami that devastated Thailand follow a long shot hint of the wife, who believes she has seen the child on footage shot by an NGO worker, into the deepest jungles of Burma. Daring, hallucinatory drama on the fringe of horror, that is remarkably staged and handled and refuses – sometimes to its detriment - to pander to audience expectations.
