Everyday he returns to the car park to continue his quest. Each night Ronny stands in the very spot Isabella went missing from and tries to retrace his own movements and recap on any clues.

A beautiful surprise
I had the opportunity to see this film recently with some friends. I have become a fan of Sam Heughan, who plays Ronny Maze and I am honest to say this is the reason I went to see the film. Emulsion is a beautifully written story about a man who is dedicated in looking for his wife and will not give up until he finds her. A dark, mysterious plot, full of twists and turns. As soon as I thought I had hold of the story, something else happened to change my mind. I was drawn towards all the characters and really felt Ronny Maze plight. Was there a happy ending?. Well you will have to go and see it to find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I will be looking out for future films from Mr Suki Singh.
