Description: It promises to be a liberating adventure for Alice, a wild, living-on-the-edge teenager. To celebrate her high school graduation, she and her best friend Darlene have decided to treat themselves to a trip to exotic Bangkok ('Las Vegas without parents and laws,' Alice enthuses to the more cautious Darlene). Under the magical and golden Thailand sun, Alice and Darlene have the time of their lives. But things begin to change after they 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 more outgoing Alice, who must fight growing feelings of resentment and anger about her friend's romantic conquest. 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 insidious 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.
