Logline: 
A jaded expat living in a SE Asian country joins forces with a woman who has come there to kill the man who killed her sister who was trying to save children from prostitution.
Synopsis/Details: 

Rich, single, and self-absorbed, Huang Wu lives in Hong Kong where she gets word that her goody-two-shoes twin sister Guiying Wu-- who has been saving children from a life in the brothels of an unnamed SE Asian country-- has been murdered.

Huang arrives at an airport in that country to retrieve her body. Guiying's friend Joe Bannister is waiting for her. He's an expat CIA agent living out his days in a sleazy bar he owns. Over drinks Huang proposes finding and killing Guiying's murderers. Plans are laid to infiltrate the sex trade. Joe explains he can only do so much for Huang because he's been seen with Guiying. He suggests she consider adopting a disguise since by now she too has been identified as Guiying's sister. He also tells her he thinks Prattana, Guiying's adopted daughter who once was a child prostitute, can identify Guiying's killers and convinces Huang to attend an embassy party that night because it will afford her a chance to make contact with people who can help her. At the party, Joe introduces Huang to Dennison, a Brit construction contractor working in the country. The next night Huang visits a bordello rumored to specialize in children to ostensibly make a drug buy. She's led upstairs and meets the bordello's owner: Dennison. He orders his men to hold her down and shoots her up with heroin. Later, as the sun rises, Huang manages to escape and calls Joe. Joe picks her up and brings her back to his bar.

That night Joe's bar is attacked by Dennison's men because Huang, while in a drugged state, told Dennison everything-- including news that Prattana can identify the killers of her sister. Joe and Huang fight off the bad guys with martial arts-- Huang is a black belt-- and small arms fire but not before Prattana is kidnapped.

Joe and Huang storm the bordello, killing and maiming guards as they close in on Dennison. Dennison orders his men to gather up his "property"-- the kids-- which are evidence against him. Two dump trucks filled with kids pull out of the compound. Dennison escapes in one of the trucks with Prattana in his hands. Joe and Huang hop on a dirt bike and give chase.

The bike catches up to the dump truck as it lumbers toward Dennison's official business: a warehouse area where he runs and stores his company's construction equipment. A shoot-out ensues and Prattana manages to get away. Huang kills Dennison but Joe dies as well.

A year passes. Huang has continued her sister's work with the establishment of an orphanage. Prattana is by her side, helping. But as child sex trade stats fade in and out over the closing images, it's revealed that Huang, acting alone and at night, is killing hundreds of men-- their bodies hidden in a wilderness ravine-- who traveled there to have sex with children.
