Gerry leaves London to go to Singapore where his recently deceased brother had exiled, started a family and opened a hostess bar called “Mister John”. To enter a world he doesn’t know gives him the opportunity to lighten the burden of the relationship he has with his wife. He begins an initiation journey.

We had left the filmmakers with Helen (Grand Prix at the 2009’s Festival) and now, we meet again with Gerry, a man in search of himself, in a weightless narrative, that takes different tracks, going from thriller to drama with an economy of gesture ands words. Fascinating.
