This movie is based on a true story. Koh Tarutao was an island penal colony for prisoners (นักโทษการเมือง) having participated to the failed royalist rebellion in 1933. Through World War II, Tarutao island housed the country's most extreme incarceration center. A lack of supplies during the war left many prisoners to perish from disease or starvation. Two political prisonners arrive on Tarutao island with a bunch of other convicts. Nasty guardians monitored them. Sad and horrible events happened such as male prisoners raped, prisoners eaten by sharks or killed by guardians while trying to escape, prisoners harshly ransacked by guardians, lady raped by chief warden, prison director and doctor killed by chief warden. There is no way to escape from Koh Tarutao (มีแต่ตายกับตาย). The two political prisonners always fight together. They finally try but fail to escape. They are punished to be eaten by crocodiles but are saved by the two young ladies (หญิงสาวชาวเกาะ), who are residents on the island. They get in love and prepare an escape together thanks to the doctor and their father, crazy about money. The escape turns into a bloody tragedy. Only a few succeed to escape.
