Synopsis

Shot in a week by a lone British woman filmmaker but based on a year's research, this funny, moving Grey Gardens/Maysles Brothers style cinema verite doc contrasts the lives of Ian and Robin, two alcoholic expats (one British, one Dutch) living in a squat next to millionaire yachts, with the glamour of Cannes Film Festival.

Life mirrors art as the filmmaker accidentally becomes homeless during shooting and turns the camera on herself. Shows the dark side of British expat life in luxury sunny destinations.
