Patrick, an American drifter in Cambodia (Ron Livingston), witnesses the brutalization of a commoditized twelve-year-old Vietnamese girl named Holly (Thuy Nguyen) by the mama-san of a Phnom Penh brothel, and decides then and there he's going to rescue her -— something more easily said than done, as director Guy Moshe's low-key, socially conscious drama demonstrates. Moshe, co-writer Guy Jacobson, and their cast (including Chris Penn and Udo Kier as sleazy foreigners vamping on the locals) make the most of the Cambodian locations without resorting to easy bromides about sex workers or painting Patrick as righteous crusader. He's just a fairly compromised guy determined to do the right thing with one single person. The US, French, Israeli, and Cambodian production was made with a mostly Thai crew (104 min., 2006).
