Elvis Walks Home

The film tells the story of Mickey, an illegal Albanian who used to live in London and is a part-time Elvis Presley impersonator. He gets a job entertaining British peacekeeping troops during the 1999 Balkan wars. When backstage problems ensue, Mickey (dressed as Elvis Presley) flees – straight into the war zone. He meets and is captured by a group of child refugees caught up in the merciless war...
