- Synopsis / Plot
- Bruges is a welcoming destination for travellers from all over the world. But for hit men Ray and Ken, it could be their final destination; a difficult job has resulted in the pair being ordered by their London boss Harry to go and cool their heels in the storybook city for a couple of weeks. Ray, still haunted by the bloodshed, hates the place, while Ken finds his mind and soul being expanded by the serenity of the city. But the longer they stay waiting for Harry's call, the more surreal their experience becomes, as they find themselves in weird encounters with locals, tourists, violent medieval art, dwarfs, prostitutes, and a potential romance for Ray.
