Synopsis

Wei Tian, a teenage boy in junior college, prepares to leave Singapore and his childhood behind, as he accepts an offer to return to Australia for his studies. In his own little way, he quietly says goodbye to the safety of innocence and makes a step towards adulthood. A reflection of the transience and impermanence of things, the film is also a nostalgic reminiscence of all the little things that used to matter so much to us.
