Short Review

An interesting story of a German kid who goes to Cambodia and is taken for a ride by a local hooker. Oddly, he falls in love and, at no point, applies any common sense and instead follows his heart despite some things that would drive most idiots to come to their senses. Watch it and see if it works out for him or not.
