Director duo Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, otherwise known as the Desperate Optimists, return with their second feature Mister John. Gerry (Aidan Gillen) travels to Singapore where his estranged brother, a bar owner who has possibly been involved in nefarious activities, has died in a drowning accident. It emerges that Gerry is running away from his own problems at home, and, as he becomes more immersed in a foreign culture and environment, taking on his brother’s mantle becomes appealing to him. The trouble is he is not exactly a suitable substitute for the dead man.
