The Sanctuary


In 1897, the “Poisoned Knife” clan broke into the royal palace of Thailand to steal the Royal Antiques which the King intended to give to America as a reward for its help in negotiations that avoided Thai territorial cuts. The clan succeeded in stealing the antiques, but the thieves didn’t escape with their lives. Before their deaths, they hid the antiques somewhere close to the palace. During his interrogation, the last bandit chose to end his life by Master Sawang’s sword and let the place where the Royal Antiques were hidden die with him. Today, Wisa (Winston Omega), the mafia boss whose ancestors masterminded the theft of the antiques wants to find them. Wisa believes the antiques give special powers to those who possess them. He hires Patrick (Russell Wong – ‘Romeo Must Die’, ‘Mummy 3: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor’, ‘New Jack City’ ), the former Director of the U.S. military National Subterranean Exploration Unit, to search for the lost antiques. Using U.S. Army satellite scans, Patrick and Selina (Patharawarin Timkul – ‘Bangkok Dangerous’, ‘Jan Dara’), the beautiful and sexy assassin, retrieve the antiques from beneath the Thai temple where Krit (Mike B – ‘Brave’), Master Sawang’s great grandson and a gifted martial artist, resides as a temple boy. When they steal the antiques from the temple, it’s down to Krit with the help of Praifa (Intira Charoenpura – ‘Nang Nak’, ‘Brokedown Palace’, ‘King Naresuan trilogy’), an Archaeology student, to retrieve them. Together they fight against the powerful and greedy group of thugs. Will they be able to rescue Thailand’s national treasure and protect the world from evil?
