Synopsis

Alone on a tiny deserted island, Hank has given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a dead body washes ashore, and he soon realizes it may be his last opportunity to escape certain death. Armed with his new “friend” and an unusual bag of tricks, Hank goes on an epic adventure to get back to the woman of his dreams.

Director Bio

Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (Daniels) are an award-winning directing duo. One time they won Best Director at The MTV Video Music Awards, but both their moms were bummed that they don’t announce that category on TV. They made all their music videos and short films with Prettybird, and they’re represented by Mosaic. Okay, bye.

Live percussion band performance-打尖 [dǎ jiān] 

Led by Anna Fan, 打尖 [dǎ jiān] is a young and energetic group featuring drumming, dance and audience interaction with a variety of music styles from Brazilian samba school, West African Ewe music and loads of funk and hip hop. 打尖 [dǎ jiān]’s live performances are flashy and fun. The members’ vivacious chemistry is purely infectious and gets the crowd grooving along in no time. Their performances are just as visually compelling with an impressive display of trinkets and quirky percussions used.
