My brother's right.

You're a good fighter.

Don't spend it all in one place.

Time to meet the devil.

Are those women?

Yeah, 50 percent.

I'm looking for a girl.

A young girl.

I want to f***

a 14-year-old.

Only what you see.

Let me ask you a question.

You got a daughter?

Bring her in.

I'll pay you 15,000 baht.

No, no, no. Sorry.


Hey, not do like that.

Come on.

Hello, sir.

Right this way, please.

She's your daughter?

How could you do it?

How could you let this happen?

I didn't do anything.

Now's your chance to do something.

Do what you want.

Come with me.

I'm sorry. My apologies.

Please don't kill me.

What are you sorry for?

You were there. You know what I did.

He killed my daughter.

Why did you kill him?

Beacause he murdered my daughter!

You knew what your daughter was doing.

Why didn't you stop her?

How else was I to make ends meet?

I have four daughters and no sons.

What else was I supposed to do?

Don't you understand?

My daughter's just been murdered!

This isn't about your dead daughter.

It's about your three living daughters.

This is to make sure

you never forget them.

Please. I'll be a better man.

No, please don't!


It's about your brother.

Billy's dead.

I'm checking in.

One moment, please.

I'm afraid the room wouldn't be ready

until four o'clock. It's a policy.

Get your manager.

Mr. Manager, could you please

come out to the reception?

He'll be here in a minute.

What's your problem?

I have a guest here who'd

like to talk to you.

Good morning, madam.

How may I help you?

Listen to me.

I have just traveled 10,000 miles

to see the corpse

of my first-born son.

I haven't slept in 30 hours.

And this b*tch says

I can't have my room.

How are you?

Keep an eye on things, my child.


Ask him why he killed my brother.

Who hired you to kill his brother?


- Sorry, I'm late.

- Don't worry about it.

- Thank you.

- Thank you very much.

- What did she have for dinner?

- Soup and rice with chicken.

We have to leave him alone now.

Then how do we make sure

he doesn't cause trouble again?

By talking nicely to each other.

Did you miss me?

I missed you so much.

Did you get the guy that did it?

How did you kill him?

I let him go.

Get the door.

Are you out of your f***ing mind?

Some c*nt killed your brother

and you let him go?

It's a little more complicated

than that, Mother.

Meaning what, exactly?

Billy raped and killed

a 16-year-old girl.

I'm sure he had his reasons.

Now sit!

I know it's hard

for you emotionally.

You've lost your brother.

Don't worry.

I'll take care of the yellow n*gger

who killed my son.

It's too much for you.

Now get up and kiss your mother.

If you ever come back,

I'll kill you.

- Is it done?

- Yeah.

How's business?

Yeah, it's OK.

I could do with having

Billy back, though.

Isn't Julian taking care

of everything?

He hasn't told you, has he?

There was

someone else involved -

when Billy was killed.

- Who?

- Some cop.

Don't worry.

I'll find him.

And then we'll kill him.


Maybe he'd like a whisky.

Would you like a whisky?

She doesn't know what to think.

He says he didn't see it, Mum.

A foreigner called up Liang

and spoke English.

Then he went with him

and took the phone with him.

Hey, Julian.

The cops want to see you.

- What do they want?

- Probably money.

- You want me to ask how much?

- No, I'll go.

You're Julian?

- Do you know Choi Yan Lee?

- Who?

Your brother killed his daughter.

What's that have to do with me?

Choi Yan Lee was murdered.

- When?

- Yesterday.

He's not the one.
