Multicultural London is the stage for this emotionally charged tale of desire, guilt and expectation. Jake (Dan Fredenburgh – The Bourne Ultimatum, Love Actually), a working class Jewish boy made good, lives in the suburbs with his beautiful but uptight fiancée Zoe (Olivia Williams – The Ghost Writer, An Education). When his father unexpectedly dies, Jake returns to his native Finsbury Park to deal with his inheritance. The dimly lit rooms of his father’s abandoned tailor shop, inhabited by ghosts of his past, become the setting for a passionate, illicit affair with a local waitress B (Doraly Rosa – Mrs Henderson Presents, Love Actually), similarly trapped in a frustrating relationship, with needy ex-boxer Chester (Paul Bettany – Legion, The Da Vinci Code).
Writers Doraly Rosa and Dan Fredenburgh, with assured direction from Sallie Aprahamian, craft an introspective, engaging and stylish study of two lost souls at life’s crossroads, torn between loyalty and lust, between social expectations and yearning for freedom. (Daniela Boban)
