Part 4 – Game Over
Stuck in a monotonous cycle of scraping by on the dole, Micky – a nomad by nature, is positively purpose, ambition, dream and drive free. He is merely drifting, like a feather with no control over the thermals that whisk it hither and thither. During the day he whittles away whatever cash he has in the bookies, before moving on to spend his evenings with the motley-crew of cut-throats and backstabbers who he reluctantly looks upon as friends. Every day is the same – a perpetual drag, only to be endured under a drink and drug-induced haze.
Enter Slim – his boyhood buddy, resident in Israel. Slim has a proposition for Micky – would he (Micky) like to manage a bar on a tropical island in Thailand?
Micky has a question for Slim: ‘…is the Pope a Catholic?’
With renewed gusto, Micky heads for Thailand, inspired – an opportunity for change on the horizon. But he’s corrupted by Bangkok the minute he sets foot on the tarmac at the airport – the supercharged, Asian atmosphere neutralising his good intentions on impact. Can he really transcend his disposition and re-establish a connection with the world? Here’s hoping …because Thailand is a dangerous place to be out of control.
