- When I was a little girl,

my mother used to tell

me story about a princess

who lived on a beautiful

island surrounded

by turquoise waters

where the sky kissed the sea.

When the princess

met her prince,

their love grew stronger

than the waves crashing

against the shore.

So when I met Jack

one day on the beach,

he was everything I

had been searching for.

I thought it was fate.

But I had forgotten

something very important.

Every fairy tale has a monster.

In my life story, the monster's

name was Gan Cerrancurie.

A man whom I later

found out was a ruthless

crime lord.

Little did I know, our path's

were destined to collide.

- Now, a little Birdy

told me you're very bitter

about land deals that

happened between our families.

Where supposedly my

family got land that

belongs to you.

You have to understand,

that wasn't me.

- I should have squashed

you a long time ago,

when I had a chance.

- Let's bury the hatchet.

- No.

In Cambodia, there is not

enough room for the both of us.

- That means one

of us has to die.

- We will leave it to fate.

- You were always a cheat.

- In matters of life and death,

there is no cheating.

Just living and dying.

- Who's choice of weapons.

- High sword.

Winner take all.

- Well that puts me

at a disadvantage

because you're a master of

the knives and the swords.

Maybe I'll survive.

Maybe I will get lucky.

Maybe not.

You're out of practice,

my old friend.

I expected more from you.

Gentlemen, mysteriously

our competitors are gone.

You all have done a great job.

I just want to say that

violence is the last resort

because it attracts

a lot of attention,

but when we have no choice,

we're pretty good at it.

Good job.


- Ok, Sam.

Bank's around the corner,

man, are you ready?

- I know what time it is, Jack.

- Just try not to shoot me

with that thing, ok pal?

Jesus Christ.

- Hold on.

- Can we go now?

- Let's go.

- Everybody freeze.

If you don't speak English.

- Don't even think about it.


- Cooperate with us

and nobody gets hurt.

You, manager.

Open, open, open, out, out, out.

- One minute.

- Come on, man.

Go, go, go, go.

- Keep down.


- Ok, we're good,

get out of here.

- A minute forty five, go.


- Come on, man.

- Holy shit.

What do they do with

all this US currency?

I mean, this is like a

crazy amount of money.

- How much money do

you think that is?

- I haven't got a clue,

I've been busy.

- What would a small

bank in Cambodia

have this much cash, man?

- Stop complaining,

we scored, mate.

We scored.

- I'm not complaining,

what if they check the bags

on the border?

- Trust me, they won't.

- Good thing, I brought this.

- Great.

You expect us to

tape this amount

of cash to our bodies?

- Tough guy like you

scared of some tape?

- It's not the taping

I'm worried about.

It's taking it off, my son.

Taking it off.

- You're a harry bastard, man.

It'll do you some good.

- Jesus Christ.

You're always trying

to call that chick.

You need to get a life, mate.

- She is my life, man.

- You're so whipped.

Is that why you're doing this?

- Maybe.

What's it to you?

- It just makes me nervous

working with such a pussy.

- Whatever, man.

Let's get you taped up.

- No, no, no, after you, mate.

Turn around and bend over.

- Get off of me, you fucker.

This is serious.

Just fucking tape me.

Thank you.

- Thank you kindly.

- Hey, baby.

- Hey you.

- Want to do me a favor

and ditch that thing?

- I just started work.

- You just finished work.

Believe me.

- My mother

died when I was young
