A chance for a new life in a bewildering new city.
Escaping his foundering marriage in London, Gerry (Aidan Gillen) goes to Singapore to sort out the estate of his brother John, who owned a hostess bar there and has just died in mysterious circumstances.

An atmospheric, alluring and incisive character study.
