Two young Seventh Month “ge tai” starlets who call themselves the Papaya Sisters journey to become one of the most popular ge tai singers in Singapore.

This is a whimsical tale of two friends, their struggle for success and the obstacles they face such as the family rejection of their occupation. A love triangle ensues between the two friends, and the fight for survival results as one of them is stricken with cancer.

Slated for an August release in Singapore. Cast includes Mindee Ong, Yeo Yann Yann, Liu Ling Ling, Qi Yi Wu, May & Choy. Presented by Zhao Wei Films. Directed by Royston Tan.

    Hi Randy I have watch this show as well. Starting i was quite disturb by the show as the show started off with Hokkein which i dont really understand. But later part of the show i was so move by the small papaya determination to sing at the getai despite having cancer. I tend to like all the song in this movie very much. Especially one by "Yi Ren Yi Ban" . Wonder can i listen to all the song in 881 movies over the internet? If can, wat the website. Thanks

    i'm one of the crazy ones too... watched it twice and paid for my family to watch it too!! Its a show which you feel shy abt admitting how nice all those hokkien songs are. Ppl might assiciate it as "low-class" but folks, admit it, it is such an unique part of Singapore culture. Be proud of it instead of shying away! The last scene is exceptionally touching!!

    Bro, there IS a soundtrack out! Listening to it now. 14 tracks + one extra track and four MVs! Go find it, very limited, very worth your every cent. Go catch 881 in the cinemas too!

    Watch the show last night. I can only say its very entertaining and good. Most of the cast seems to be getai ppl and they are natural in the movie. The 2nd half of the show , I see many ppl tearing and sniffing, very gan ren.... Royston Tan, you did it again.
