"Hand on the shoulder is a loaded gesture. It's an excuse for a hug that will never happen."

Set in present day London, "Hand on the Shoulder" is a film about political exile.
A man, writer from Former Yugoslavia and a woman, an English translator get accidentally connected through their profession. As they begin to work together, past and present, memory and oblivion, silent hopelessness and open despair begin to circumscribe a complex relationship which ends in a shocking way.
