  • The Tears of Julian Po Working


Julian, a 30 year-old, non-descript book-keeper, is on his way to see the sea for the first time when his car breaks down near a tiny old-fashioned town, off the beaten track. The locals are not used to strangers and view him with suspicion. When he tells them he intends suicide, they are impressed and he becomes a celebrity. However, problems arise when, after raising expectations, he shows no signs of doing away with himself.
