AT THE HORIZON is about two different worlds colliding: the wealthy influential people on the one hand and the poor and honest on the other hand.
Sin, a wealthy boy has been spoiled by his parents and has never realized the importance of self-dependence and how to become a responsible man. The boy lives his life relying on his parents wealth and power,making him even more arrogant and pompous. Lud, a mute middle-aged man came from a rural area to be a motorcycle mechanic in Vientiane. His wife works as a market woman and they have a six-year-old daughter.
Though Lud's life is simple, his family is warm and loving. One day, Lud unexpectedly faces the greatest loss of his life - and Sin is the cause.
"Themes of social inequality, personal responsibility and the application of justice are vividly examined en route to a suspenseful, bloody and highly satisfying climax." - Variety
