Bringing to life stories of everyday people – their joy, their struggles, and their sacrifice, with each episode following one neighbour as he or she navigates through everyday life and its challenges.

Episode 1:
LIAN is the story of a burnt out and financially-drained single mother struggling to cope with her 19-year-old son with autism, who displays aggressive behaviours during meltdowns following the sudden death of his grandmother, who was his main caregiver.

Episode 2:
CHUAN is a taxi driver by day and “tangki” (spiritual medium) by night. He finds his sanity in peril when a malicious ghost begins to haunt him, pushing him down a path of self-destruction in search of the truth.
