Although the main characters come from different backgrounds and lead different lives, they all long to be with their loved one. Unbeknownst to them, these different souls will share the same stage in a play written by Fate, one which involves the themes of love, tragedy, and redemption. The characters in the movie are fictitious except for Theresa Chan. Deaf and blind since she was 14, Theresa ? who is now 61 ? is a remarkable woman who has triumphed over her disabilities to live an amazing life. She is the film’s beacon, a symbol of strength and hope. This film is from Singapore and is 93 minutes, we’ll provide the popcorn!
