Elvis Walks Home

* Fatmir Koci

Director: Fatmir Koci

Writers: Fatmir Koci/ Jonathan Preece
Genre: Comedy-Drama, War

Synopsis: Mickey Jones scrapes a living as a nightclub singer in the tacky Mediterranean resort of Zayana. He’s a great Elvis Presley impersonator but a meagre human being: selfish and careless. An argument with two drunken women turns into a fight, and before he knows it Mickey is on the run from the vicious thugs of this police state. Mickey is chased across the border into another country. He doesn’t know the language, the villages are deserted, artillery rumbles across the hills, and all Mickey possesses are his guitar and what he stands up in: his Elvis Presley jumpsuit. Mickey is found and held at gunpoint by a group of war orphans. For them, adults are dangerous. Petrified, Mickey tells them he is a UN doctor and will lead them to a UN camp if they spare his life. They believe him...
