Can a man with a bad and troubled past turn himself around and make a journey to a better self? Could a woman have a role to play in that? That is the challenge confronting Pavel Morrow as he embarks on a final assignment in search of an alleged traitor, Chen/Christopher, and is plunged into an encounter with his daughter, the young Singaporean activist Li. The drama is played out as they criss-cross Malaysia and Thailand, under the watchful and pragmatic eyes of Phyllis, an older, Muslim friend and colleague of Li’s.
Cynicism and ruthlessness versus idealism and trust? Pavel is compelled to review his own morality as he grows increasingly closer to Li. Together they investigate an atrocity that occurred during the Malayan Emergency, and engage with the plight of Rohingya refugees who flee persecution in Rakhine State.
