The blurring of truth and the ready acceptance of lies as two strangers meet in Changi International Airport. A teenager living with her disabled mother discovers her own sexuality and ambition in the unlikeliest of ways. A girl tells us of her first love, and why the relationship cannot prosper. The neglected housewife of an artist dishes out more than just delicious food to feel loved. A man battles against his own moral code and his hunger for life experience. Just a few of the stories that re-examine lives in South East Asia and allow bizarre urban hallucinations to permeate the most mundane moments.
