LOGLINE

Former criminal Rickard (Ola Rapace – “Skyfall”, “Section Zero”) has vanished. Fleeing Sweden and the old friends he has testified against, he abandons his name, his life, and his family to start over in Thailand. Ten years later and still with a price on his head, Rickard knows that a return home would be a death sentence. And so he ekes out his existence as a small-time crook in the back alleys of Phuket. Life’s tough and dirty, but at least it won’t kill him.  

That’s the idea anyway.  

When his fifteen-year-old daughter Thyra comes looking for him, Rickard’s self-imposed exile in this gritty paradise is soon under threat.  

His attempts to push her away only drive her deeper into the dark underworld that Rickard knows only too well. After a momentary lapse in judgement, Rickard’s cover is blown and both he and his daughter find themselves in very real danger. Their only chance of survival is to strike back at those who are coming for them.  

Yesterday he was alone. Today he has a daughter to look after. But how can he protect her when he can’t even protect himself?  

“Farang” is an action-packed international thriller that explores the complicated ties that bind a father with his daughter, and features a stellar cast including Ola Rapace (“Skyfall”, “Section Zero”, “Wallander”, “Together”), Louise Nyvall (“Girls Lost”) and Yayaying Rhatha Phongam (“Only God Forgives”).
