A piece of paper, a passport, an identity card or a new legend can give a person a second chance, a new life and – in some cases – the ability to commit all manner of crimes.

Professional forger Alan Figg operates in a world of duplicity where little is what it seems. He provides people with new identities and often the chance of a new life. His clients range from embezzlers to murderers, from credit card scammers to Mafiosi; as long as they can pay, Figg provides, no questions asked. But with age beginning to take its toll on his craft, and a thug threatening his life, Figg's world is about to spin out of control.

Supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund and inspired by a real-life Russian forger, director and screenwriter Ian Pringle (Isabelle Eberhardt, MIFF 1991; Wrong World, MIFF 1985) has crafted a taut, engrossing story about the disposable, desperate underbelly of society.
