Watch Teaser

Bob Harris has seen better days as a film star, but still has enough cachet to get a lucrative deal hawking luxury whiskey in Japan. He shares hotels with young American photographer's wife Charlotte, who's accompanying her husband to the Far East and finds herself at loose ends. While Bob's wife henpecks him from afar with constant messages, Charlotte's husband is suddenly whisked away on business. The two team up to explore the Tokyo neon netherworld, baffled at the foreign language all around. The two fish out of water have to learn to go with the flow in the big pond overseas.
