A bittersweet comedy about a man who discovers his true self late in life. Ever the dutiful son, shy, single Niko has dedicated his life to his father’s traditional tailor’s business. But the business must change to survive, and with it Niko blossoms as he sees the joy he can bring to people’s lives. A celebration of texture, colour and the finest fabrics, with a tremendous central performance (think Jacques Tati meets PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT), this tale of triumph in the face of adversity is a true one-off.
