The Flying Man
Meet Maqil - also known as Mike, Mehmet, Mikhail and Miguel - a chancer and charlatan.
A criminally clever man who tells a good tale, trading on his charm and good looks, reinventing himself with a new identity and nationality in each successive country he makes his home, abandoning wives and children and careers in the process. He's a compulsive gambler - driven to lose at least as much as he gains, in games of chance, and in life. A damaged man in search of himself.
