After discovering his wife's infidelities, Gerry leaves London to look after his deceased brother's business and family in Singapore. Discovering a foreign world of opportunity that had not existed before gives Gerry a chance at starting over by slipping into his brother's life - both emotionally and physically. However, leaving his wife and child behind in the UK is not so easy as Gerry must choose between becoming his brother's alter ego 'Mister John' or returning to London to face his failing relationship.

I keep thinking about dad in the lake, I don't like the idea that he was all alone when he died I keep thinking about it
Yeah I keep thinking about it as well
Mom believes that dad's ghost is still in the lake
Do you believe that?
I'm not sure do you think it could be true?
I don't know... I guess it's possible, but I'm not the right person to ask... you really should talk to your mother about that

The Irish Film Board should be ashamed for producing a film like this. Not only was the acting horrific, from the full cast, but the narrative seemed like it was thrown together in the editing room. This film is on a similar level with 'The Room'.
In the IFB's defence, I suspect that the Singapore Tourist board had a hand up their asses. The unnecessary eroticism and prostitution made me wonder whether the country is trying to adopt South East Asias sex tourism as part of their national identity.
I don't question how they got their funding, I question the choice of directors and actors. The talent in Ireland is being wasted on this drivel.
I want my money back.
