Adapted from Mark Haskell Smith's novel 'Salty', the film follows an ageing rock star whose holiday in Thailand takes a turn for the worse when his wife is kidnaped by pirates.
The story follows the experience of Turk Henry; rock star and bassist for a recently split mega platinum music band. Married to a supermodel and rich beyond his wildest dreams, Turk finds his pampered paunch plopped on the beach in Phuket. Turk soon discovers that Thailand is probably the last place a recovering sex addict should go on vacation. As he struggles with monogamy, his wife is mysteriously abducted by a group of renegade, ship-less Thai pirates. Having never organised anything more challenging than a club sandwich from room service, Turk embarks on a mission to rescue his wife. With life skills better suited to playing bass, playing the field, and partying he is forced to navigate the back alleys of Bangkok, with hilarious escapades in the flesh pots of Patpong. And take on ruthless bandits in the deadly jungles of South East Asia.
