Pirates attack a British yacht off the coast of Sumbawa, an island in Indonesia. They shoot the skipper and abuse his wife, Alison. After suffering great cruelty, Alison manages to escape by jumping overboard. Hell-bent on achieving justice, she appeals to the local police. However, finding them useless and corrupt, Alison is left with no choice but to take matters into her own hands. She joins forces with local girl Ngo, who has her own reasons to seek vengeance against the pirates. A powerful bond develops between these unlikely heroines and together they conspire to set a trap for the pirates and exact a terrible revenge.
