Based on the true story of Alain Olivier, a Canadian drug addict from Quebec who spent eight years in prison in Thailand in the 1980s after having been set up as an unwitting pawn in an espionage plot by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the film stars Josh Hartnett as Canadian investigative journalist Victor Malarek, investigating the arrest of drug addict Daniel Léger (Antoine Olivier Pilon).

In 1989, Victor Malarek, a Canadian journalist investigates the circumstances surrounding the suspicious arrest of Daniel Léger, a 25-year-old heroin addict serving time in a prison in Thailand and facing the death penalty.

Malarek is a dedicated investigative journalist working for The Globe and Mail newspaper who is being pressured by his boss to move to writing weekly feature articles. He comes across the strange case of a Canadian citizen under arrest in Thailand after a joint investigation by Canadian and Thai authorities. Léger is identified as a mastermind in the drug trafficking trade. Malarek's interest is piqued when he queries a few details with the Canadian authorities and receives push back. He decides to dig deeper and uncovers some worrying items about the case. He brings the case to his editor Art with a view to doing a piece. Art reluctantly agrees to let Malarek visit Thailand and interview the Thai authorities and Léger.

The film then splits and introduces Daniel Léger, who is shown to be little more than a drug addict, who naively took a job with a dealer, Glen Picker. Picker befriends the naive Léger and offers to let him stay and work for him, all the while intending to set up Léger for a pay-off from the Canadian police narcotics division. He identifies Léger as a major player in the Thai drug world, and indicates that Léger can organise for a major shipment of heroin to be smuggled to Canada. The narcotics police in need of a major morale boosting drugs seizure fall for Picker's scam. The lead detective, Frank Cooper makes an error in reviewing Léger and mistakes him for another criminal with a detailed criminal history.

Picker manipulates Léger into meeting with detective Cooper under the guise of a favour and naively believes Cooper to be a drug smuggler. The narcotics operation hits a snag when it's uncovered that Léger is nervous to travel to Thailand, and he has had his passport withheld. The Canadian police organise for Léger's passport to be issued, pay for the young man's flights, hotels and expenses in Thailand. Léger left with no other options, travels to Thailand and tries to organise for a drug buy, but can only find a Tuk Tuk driver who can get 2 kilos of heroin. The Canadian police agree to the deal but the deal goes awry.

Léger turns up with Cooper who is undercover and the suppliers arrive separately. There is a struggle, and in the chaos that ensues Detective Cooper shoots his son Al Cooper fatally. The drug suppliers are arrested, alongside Léger and taken to a Thai prison.
