CHAI Yee-Wei Singapore 2023 125 min M18 (Coarse Language)

Two middle-aged fathers bond over their love for their daughters in this affecting drama about friendship in our golden years.

Loke and Tan live inverted lives: Loke owns a joss paper shop and lives with his daughter Eileen, while Tan is a lonely church pianist and recovering alcoholic-gambler. Their paths cross after Loke sells his house to fund Eileen’s studies abroad and moves next to Tan. Filled with regrets over his own estranged daughter, Tan offers to translate and transcribe the illiterate Loke’s correspondences with Eileen. When Tan is privy to news of a devastating tragedy, he constructs an elaborate lie to protect Loke from the truth.

Set in 1980s Singapore, Wonderland depicts the profound joy and companionship of friendship in one’s silver years, highlighting the importance of community ties in an era of rapid change and progress.
