A chance for a new life in a bewildering new city.

Audience Award Nominee

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. Increasingly drawn toward John’s Chinese widow, while learning more and more about the ins and outs of John’s business, Gerry realises he has the opportunity to start a new life by slipping into his brother’s identity. An atmospheric, alluring and incisive character study.
