Deep in the pristine jungle of northern Thailand lies the River of Reflection. Named for it's crystal clear water, the river is home to the legendary Mahseer. A species first prized by British anglers in the days of the Raj for its phenomenal fight. Filmmaker Travis Lowe follows three anglers as they work with local Karen villagers to protect the entire 60km length of the river. Hoping to open up the River of Reflection as a world class destination fishery. And in the process, help bring desperately needed money to the cash starved Karen villagers. A feat that may require a witch doctor, a spirit curse and quite possibly the introduction of mahseer fish aquaculture. But every Thai odyssey begins and ends in Bangkok, the City of Life. And like Adam Trina says "the 'Kok's a cruel mistress and if you don't treat her right, you're in for a big surprise when you lift up that skirt". Currently in production, Thai One On is coming in 2013 to F3T. Provided we make it out of Bangkok alive. A Cinema Digital Production and a Travis Lowe film.
