Tul (Nopachai Jayanama) is a cop-turned-professional killer. He has just received the mug shots of his next victim and readies himself for the assassination by - perversely - shaving his head to impersonate a Buddhist monk. However, his killing routine is about to change. The job goes awry and he's shot in the head. Three months later, Tul awakens to a world turned upside down. Is it a brain injury, karmic retribution or a metaphor of the immoral twisted world we live in? Based on Win Lyovarin‘s novel, Headshot is a "Buddhist noir" (words of the director), a great piece of stylish, badass neo-noir cinema.
