Synopsis: In multicultural and cosmopolitan Singapore, Onassis (Epy Quizon), a Filipino single father, is struggling with a failing business, rising rents and a bureaucratic civil service. Just when things start to look up, he is cheated of all his savings. One dog day afternoon, he decides he has had enough. In a matter of hours, the lives of a materialistic motivational speaker, his adulterous wife, her tent-making spiritual shepherd and a mainland Chinese gangster will forever change (excerpt taken from SGIFF 2014).

Director's Bio: Ken Kwek is a Singaporean screenwriter, director and playwright. His screenwriting credits include Glen Goei’s "The Blue Mansion" (2009) and Kelvin Tong’s "It’s A Great, Great World" (2011).
