Storyline

The film begins by showing clips from Tom’s current life. He is a businessman, lost in his material and superficial world. He is also cheating on his wife with a mistress who harshly condemns his lifestyle. His wife finds out about the affair and threatens to leave Tom. As a result, he loses control and brutally beats her up. He has to go to prison for six months

After imprisonment, he spends time with his mother and brother, who live in a mobile home in the absence of his father, who died at an early age. He decides to move to London. After initial problems with the estate agent over his imprisonment are resolved, he moves into a meagre flat in the Bloomsbury district of London

Self-doubt and loneliness are now the content of his days. Eventually he befriends a girl called PJ, and through her Tom gets some warmth and colour back into his life. But then he meets his attractive neighbour Inès. A tender connection develops between the two

This quiet and mysterious woman interests Tom. When he eventually learns details about her history, it also puts his own problems back into perspective. Despite the pain, there is always hope
