This short film depicts Malaysia’s mixed culture, where different custom, food, and languages intermingle. An Indian woman who had been adopted by a Chinese couple as a six year-old orphan remembers her childhood days and begins talking about them. It is important for people who live in multicultural countries to understand and accept each other. This work carries the message that regardless of our different roots and ways of thinking, at the end of the day, we are all human.
