Clara, a forty year old ‘tai tai’ (wealthy lady of leisure) faces a mid-life crisis and decides to run away to the only place that has ever made any sense to her – the shopping centers. As she lives there, Clara crosses paths with Renu, an eight-year old latchkey kid who has been abandoned by her parents in a 24-hour mall and Aaron, an angst-y twenty three year old who skips work to hang out at the mall with his friends. Together, they find love, loss and liberation in the heart of Singapore. An official selection of the Hawaii International Film Festival, the Udine Film Festival in Italy and the Shanghai International Film Festival.
