    • Synopsis
    • Immediately upon arriving in Bangkok, American JEFF (Cary Elwes), his Thai wife SUA (Paula Taylor) and their son KYLE are hit by a truck while driving to visit Sua's father.
      Six weeks later Jeff regains consciousness in hospital. He's horrified to learn he's the only survivor and unsettled by his own lack of grief. Even more unsettling, Jeff begins seeing ghosts, all of whom appear to have died terribly, and he confides in his nurse CHOI (Ploy Jindachote).
      Choi takes Jeff to spiritual adviser MAE who explains that his family's souls, having died prematurely and violently, are trapped in the Shadow World and are doomed to relive their moment of death. Only one man knows how to help them, WARREN, an American expat soul surfer.
      From Warren, Jeff learns that his own soul is trapped inside the fatal wreck along his wife and child. His soul has never left his family and this is the reason he is unable to feel grief. The only way for Jeff to help his family cross over from the Shadow World to a place of rest is for him to enter it and release his family himself.
      Getting in is hard enough, but getting out can be impossible.
