Chang allows the father to kill his daughter's murderer, then "restores order" by chopping off the man's right hand. Julian's mother Crystal (Dame Kristin Scott Thomas) - the head of a powerful criminal organization - arrives in Bangkok to collect her son's body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and "raise Hell".

But the man behind Billy's killing is the invincible Angel of Vengeance, the katana-wielding Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), who is playing on his own turf, enforcing payback and his own kind of speedy justice.
