When a boy is murdered in the grounds of a Buddhist monastery in Bangkok, the police do little to solve the crime, leaving Father Ananda - a former homicide detective - to investigate the murder. But the situation becomes more complicated with the murder of another monk, who happens to be one of the four secret agents working undercover to expose a large drug trafficking network operating through the temple. Yet, all evidence relating to the identity of these undercover agents cannot be found either in the police record or the national files of population registration. With the help of his temple boy Jak, Ananda travels the canals of the city to unravel the clues and catch the killer.
