The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel meets Contagion.
When the RV Mekong Vista is quarantined outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia, an unexpected adventure begins.
Four couples meet aboard a colonial riverboat on a dream cruise along the Mekong - the honeymooners who’ve found love after losing their partners, the retired banker and the wife who terrorises him, the barrister and his young husband who can’t move on to the next wonder fast enough, and the elderly academic who plans to strong-arm her daughter into becoming her companion.
Everyone’s voyage is different and by the end relationships and the world are changed. Dunkirk spirit gives way to fear and loathing as the confinement continues.
Humorous and heart-warming, Death on The Mekong is a tale of love and resilience in the time of Covid. Inspired by a real incident.
