Violent and sensual, Hit Man File is a unique new Asian action film with a distinctive Thai identity. Hit Man File's story of ambition, revenge, murder and sacrifice reveals hypnotic beauty beneath the flash and grit of Bangkok's underworld and explores an unending cycle of life and death that can either destroy or redeem even the most ruthless, cold-blooded assassin.

Forsaking his idealist past, Tanthai has become the Thai underworld's secret weapon: a remorseless contract killer able to dispatch any target -- provided his price is met. But when Beum, a Machiavellian politician, hires Tanthai to eliminate an upstart drug kingpin threatening Bangkok's fragile criminal status quo, the lone wolf assassin's ethical vacuum is inadvertently breached. Caught between rival Triad bosses, mercenary policemen and power hungry parliamentarians, Thailand's deadliest assassin becomes the country's most wanted target. As Bangkok boils over into a full-fledged gang war, Tanthai crosses gun barrels with a rival from out of his past and risks everything to answer a conscience he thought he'd long ago erased.

Tanthai's fight for survival takes him through a twilight world of boxing rings, nightclubs, funeral parlors and gambling dens that "looks fabulous" (Variety). Amidst the light, smoke, water and soil that are the elemental fabric of both Bangkok's notorious vice epidemic and Thailand's eternal splendor, Hit Man File blurs the lines between ceremony and conspiracy, ritual and revenge, desire and destiny. Hit Man File is an intimate one-of-a-kind Southeast Asian gun opera that transforms assassins into pilgrims, politicians into warlords and gangsters into martyrs.
