On an idyllic island south of Singapore, Guohui and Peiling spend their last moments together as their relationship falls apart. The film is set in contemporary Singapore and structured into three distinct chapters. Through the country’s ever-changing landscape, the two lovers realize that what is transitory can also be eternal. The film explores the memories of the two characters and the oppressive past of St. John’s Island, which was, at various points in modern history, a quarantine center, a penal colony and a drug rehabilitation centre.
