Synopsis

Offbeat drama starring Damon Lowry as 17-year-old Johnny Fortune, an out-of-luck gambler who chances upon a newspaper advertisement which reads simply 'Entertainer Requires Assistant'. Believing this could be a way out of his seemingly hopeless situation, he enters employment as a dancing bear by unconventional Punch and Judy man Silva (Tom Waits). But despite Johnny's seemingly foolproof disguise, it isn't long before his troubled past catches up with him...
