Thomas is a functional boozer who works hard in international development. His first post is in Vietnam where he is tasked with contriving convincing planning and progress reports to ensure that his federally-funded company continues to bank coin through infrastructure development. All the while, he falls in love with Vietnam, the people and their ways. Unrequited and unfortunately, his hard work begets hard time(s) as he is dismissed from his "creative writing" job, and thereby Vietnam, on charges of quoteunquote immoral behavior.. A victim of love, he rambles throughout Asia, from country to country, and girl to girl, fueled by one bottle after another, trying his worst to emulate the frivolous meanderings of his far more successful author friend, Grant. Along this journey, from Thailand, to South Korea, to Indonesia, to Vietnam with double-backs, he strives to re-realize his long-lost goal of finding the one woman with whom he can finally settle down; a life-partner who will not only allow for his perverse proclivities, but also finally put them to rest. Could a final jaunt, this one to China - a land of over half a billion women - partner him with that one woman who can finally contain his affections?
