Julian (Ryan Gosling), an American fugitive from justice, runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his drug business. His mother (Kristin Scott Thomas), the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body of her favorite son, Billy. Julian’s brother has just been killed after having savagely murdered a young prostitute. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance, she demands the heads of the murderers from Julian. But first, Julian must confront Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), the powerful local police chief, and a mysterious figurehead of a divine justice, who has resolved to scourge the corrupt.
