Jonah ManBook - 2012
Jonah Man is narrated by a one-handed juggler who moonlights as a drug trafficker, a talented young boy who longs to escape the shadow of his abusive father and a police inspector whose overzealous efforts to solve a murder result in a series of calamitous missteps. It explores the dark side of life behind the curtain, where artists resort to the most extreme measures to prolong their time in the limelight. Resurrecting the lost language of vaudeville, Jonah Man is a gripping portrait of people torn between their greatest hopes and fears, while trying to keep reality at bay.
