Infamous club promoter, actor and singer, ROBERT PERENO who describes himself as a bi-polar, loquacious narcissist, ROBERT PERENO is a seductive, charming and brutally honest man. The Promoter follows a year in his life….

Robert gives an overview of his past from a privileged up-bringing in ex-pat Calcutta during the 60s, to his foray into music, acting and club land, where he promoted many top London nightclubs such as The Camden Palace, The Wag, Crazy Larry's and SW1 to name a few.

Never lost for words, always with a quote and a handy aphorism, we see Robert ecstatic as he promotes his new Film Club and Singer Old Fashioned Daisy Tallulah Johnson. Then, conversely in the pits of despair, when his addictive proclivities get the better of him, to capsize his projects, his marriage and his life.

With help from a colourful ensemble of co-stars from Adam Ant, DJ Rusty Egan, actress & singer Eve Ferret, DJ Gaz Mayall to help illuminate his life, Robert manages to find hope through his friends for a new kind of future...
