Thailand, the Land of Smiles. Pete, a young travel writer, wanders into a Bangkok go-go bar and meets the love of his life. Joy is the girl of his dreams: young, stunningly pretty, and one of the Zombie Bar's top-earning pole dancers. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of sex, drugs and deception, as Pete discovers that his very own private dancer is not all that she claims to be. And that far from being the girl of his dreams, Joy is his own personal nightmare... The disastrous course Pete embarks upon when he falls for Joy is all too obvious to his mates while Pete remains only vaguely aware that he may be just another tourist "ATM machine". The vanity of men knows no bounds and Pete's self-belief that Joy is really in need of salvation and that he is the man to deliver it triumphs over common sense. Pete increasingly loses his own sense of reality as he falls in love with Joy, wishes to save her from poverty and grasping mamasans, and blinkers himself to the reality of the world he has stepped into.
