What happens when you’re far from home and on-route to living your dream? Do you come back to start again with nothing to show for your years of effort when things get rough or do you hang on in the hope that success and the life you’ve imagined is just round the corner? Co-directed by Daneeta Loretta Saft and Patrick Jackson, Tokyo Cowboys follows the stories of four Gaijin living those very questions in seductive Japan. Daneeta joins us this week to discuss their feature debut.
