BETTY, a 10-year-old street kid, is brought to Bangkok
to sell flowers to the tourists who are slowly transforming the area. The year is
1987 and Bangkok is a place where you can still find areas crowded by adventurers,
hiding from conventions, conformity and whatever else they left behind. Out of all
the bars in Bangkok, she walks in to The Shangri-La owned by JIM SLICK, a Vietnam
War veteran who likes kids only marginally better than the silver spooned
travellers disrupting the status quo of this last clandestine outpost.
But Betty is no ordinary kid. She is marked by war and fighting for a
place to belong, a feeling Slick knows only too well.
