Bangkok, an assassin misbehaves during a mission and kills one of the accomplices without knowledge of his other partner in crime.
Two heroin sisters posed to avenge and hunt the perpetrators who killed their beloved sister. Involuntarily they enter into a complicated labyrinth full of accomplices and supporters who are only a tool in someone else’s hands. Everything is being controlled by a ruthless, manipulative and obscure organization.
USEFUL IDIOTS aim to be a meeting point between neorealism and the absurdity of existence. A combination of modern elements and a desire for poetry that is lost without remedy. The movie is set in present times that are irredeemably corrupt and uses contemporary language. It is a tragicomic epic of absurd characters inserted in a plot that looks like a revenge noir well masterminded by some hidden entity. My film is a representation of the insanity of life in a rigorously realistic way: the perfect encounter between Pasolini and Pinter.

As a warning to all the defaulters, two killers are slowly killing Jorge, a long-term foreign resident in the Soi, who is several months late in his loan payments. The news is rapidly shared across the community, mostly because many of them swear they have seen the ghost of the farang (westerner in Thai). Police has no doubts: it’s a suicide case. But everyone in the community knows it is not the case. Jorge friends, a wide variety of typical Bangkokians, from the fruit vendor to the part time prostitute, decide to take the matter in their hands and start a long quest to find the truth. Like in a modern take of Hamlet, Jorge’s ghost will reveal secrets, relationships, trickeries and will end up leading the community in a rebellion against the bank. A war that makes no prisoners
