Julian (Ryan Gosling), the protagonist of "Only God Forgives," runs a boxing club in Bangkok and drifts through the city like a ghost, relying on prostitutes and strippers for sexual release. The only constant presence in his life is his brother Billy (Tom Burke), who seems just as damaged and estranged.
Then something happens that requires their domineering mother, Crystal (Kristin Scott Thomas), to fly in from the United States and help clean up the mess.
