20 year-old "Melody", at a crossroads in her life, tries to find her own path, and herself, by backpacking alone through Southeast Asia.
Melody has wanted to be a writer for a while but knows it is hard to make a living at it. She's been making good money as a model. And her protective father thinks she needs to study something practical. After a particularly disturbing experience at a private audition, Melody decides she needs to leave it all behind and find out what she really wants to do with her life. Within a few weeks in Asia, her eyes have been openned to a whole new world, a whole new way of thinking and she's fallen in love.
After a rave party in international waters, Melody suddenly disappears. Her father quickly flies to Asia but the authorities have no answers, so he must follow his daughter's footsteps and find out what happened.
