Synopsis

Under the magical and golden Thailand sun, Alice and Darlene meet a seductive and handsome Australian, Nick Parks. Both girls are smitten with Nick, who eventually asks Darlene to spend the night with him--much to the surprise of the outgoing Alice. When Nick proposes a quick side trip to Hong Kong, Darlene convinces Alice to come along. Nick's real plans, however, are anything but romantic: He's using Alice and Darlene in an insiduous heroin-smuggling scheme. At the Bangkok airport, the two girls are shocked when heroin is found in their luggage. As they are surrounded by Thai police and DEA officers, Alice and Darlene are caught up in a maelstrom of hysteria, panic and confusion, each suspecting the other of a dark betrayal.
