Singaporean director Jow Zhi Wei's feature film debut, co-produced by Singapore, Taiwan, France, and Portugal, is a visually striking wonder, reminiscent of the works of Apichatpong Weerasethakul. The film transports viewers into an unsettling void, where the lives of the forgotten unfold. Jow's earlier short films have garnered recognition at esteemed film festivals, including Cannes, Busan, and San Sebastian.


Chua and Meng, the father and son, exist in a social context wherein the mass of steel and concrete spaces are underpinned by very fragile lives. Chua, the father, is struggling on the periphery, while Meng, a callow youth, is searching for his identity in a displaced society. This is a personal portrait of the massive dichotomy of economic progress and the people who maintain it, a working class lost in the wilderness of survival in the modern world.
