Off the coast of Thailand, a site of great misfortune and cruelty for the Rohingya, a local fisherman finds an injured man. Over time, he nurses the man back to health, but the stranger does not speak. The fisherman names him Thongchai, and incorporates him into every aspect of his life. A striking meditation on identity, Manta Ray is a film of exquisite beauty that finds moments of transcendence in the context of immense brutality.
