Movie propaganda

Beneath the banyan trees is a noirish tale set against the exotic background of Thailand and Cambodia. Waiting for the heat to cool from a failed USA insurance scam, Jimmy (Matt Dillon) grows restless in Bangkok. When he hears rumours that his partner and mentor Marvin (James Caan) has surfaced in Cambodia, he sets off to get his promised cut. What he finds there is a mysterious and hostile environment where even the most polished criminal can end up on deadly ground. The further Jimmy gets in his search for Marvin, the deeper he plunges himself into a predicament from which he may not return.
