The protagonist is Benjamin, a rising star filmmaker on the brink of premiering his second film “No Self” at the London Film Fest.

Things change when Billie, his hard-drinking publicist introduces him to a French musician called Noah.

Directed by British comedian Simon Amstell, the film is autobiographical and deeply personal.
