'… I turn to face the city. I gaze out at its concrete horrors and joys, its twists and turns, its ups and downs, its foul, fetid smells and sweet, stagnant dreams. The pleasure. The guilt. I love this place, and hate it. I cannot resolve the two.'
Trapped in the unrelenting grip of pain and heartache, Josh is losing his hold on reality. Having escaped to Bangkok, his life appeared to be turning around with a beautiful girlfriend, a roof over his head and a somewhat unconventional job.
But then he took a call from somebody he thought he left behind a long time ago. On the first plane back to Hong Kong, he finds his life has again embarked on a downward spiral, and feels powerless to stop it.
Swearing he’d never go back to his old ways, Josh can’t help himself from being dragged into a world of danger and hostility. Can he escape the path set out before him and, ultimately, does he want to?
