Marc Isaacs
When the Filmmaker is told his next film must be about crime, sex or celebrity to get funded, he takes matters into his own hands and begins shooting in his home with a cast of characters connected to his own life. Two English builders, employed to replace the garden fence, temporarily remove the barrier between the house and a Pakistani neighbour, and a homeless Slovakian man charms the Filmmaker’s Colombian cleaner into letting him in. What follows tests everyone’s ideas of boundaries and hospitality.
