Such is Life at NTU ADM Portfolio

A story of two undertakers, one young and new to the job, the other old and dehumanized.

“Such Is Life” is a short film project with an initiative to diversify and expand the range of genre stories told in Singapore. Drawing inspiration from theater and satire, it is a genre bending narrative consisting of dark comedy, tragic comedy and drama that focuses on themes of life and death, young and old, authority, ethics and values.

One Hour Two Dollar Short Film at NTU ADM Portfolio

The film is about a boy who hides away in an internet cafe after closing time,  and the old man who owns it. The two of them are forced to come to terms with their own situations, when the shop has to close for good.

Over the course of one night in the shop, these two characters get close and change their perspectives about each other. This film aims to show how running away does not solve any problems.
