Synopsis

No More Than This is a surrealist film about Nam Nguyen, a 57-year-old Vietnamese man who lives alone and works as a museum guard. Nam has a daughter from a failed marriage that he seldom sees and is socially isolated. Though he has called Britain his home for years, he feels invisible and does not feel he belongs in society. One day his worst nightmare appears to have become reality — that he no longer exists.
