Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Leading Malaysian independent filmmaker Ho Yuhang steps behind the camera once again to tell this sensitive tale of a mournful road trip that also serves to signal one teenager's reluctant transition into adulthood. En route back to his small town following an extended visit with his older brother Hong (Cheung Wing Hong) in Koala Lampur, nineteen-year-old Tung (Kuan Choon Wai) misplaces his money in the bustling bus station. When Tung discovers that small-time hood Hong has died in a violent pool hall fight shortly after his departure, the younger brother soon makes his way back to the city in order to attend his elder sibling's funeral. Upon traveling home for the second time, Tung's mental malaise leads him to feel like a stranger in his once-familiar home, and soon prompts him to realize that in order to experience life to its fullest, he too must now brave the future and strike out on his own.
