Neville Umbrellaman is a verbose, velvet-voiced intellectual who hosts a late-night radio show from his parents’ garage. The alter ego of Rabindranath Chakraborty, Umbrellaman is deeply committed to the program, a labour of love and fantastical fancy that masks deeper, more tragic truths. But when he suddenly finds himself in hospital, a group of unexpected performers crash his show The Lonely Spirits Variety Hour to keep it on the air.  
 
During the anxious wait for clarity and results, Umbrellaman's live show must stay on air, so an eccentric guest list help complete the variety line up. This includes folk singer Kenneth Wong, Rabindranath's crush Sabrina D’Angelo, Terry the neighbour, local French baker Yvette and jazz band Freddy Nietchze’s Good-time Bee-Bop Quintet. There will be no rehearsals. 


The Lonely Spirits Variety Hour is that rare beast – one that’s on the cusp of extinction – a true original.’ - Filmink 

 After the screening, Director Platon Theodoris and lead actors Nitin Vengurlekar & Sabrina Chan D’Angelo will join us for a Q&A session.
