The film is set in Bangkok and centers around Julian (Ryan Gosling), a former kickboxer and gangster living in exile in Bangkok for the past 10 years after killing a cop. When his brother is murdered by a ruthless police lieutenant, Julian is pressured by his drug kingpin mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) to avenge him at any cost.
The film is the second collaboration between Refn and Gosling, and the supporting cast features Vithaya Pansringarm, Tom Burke and Yayaying.
