Synopsis: WHITE DAYS involves three characters who are dealing with their own personal crises. The film begins with a young man, whose trip out of the country is abruptly canceled when the friend whom he was supposed to go with dies. He reconnects with his friends back home, including a religious fanatic who has just returned from a pilgrimage to Israel, and a translator who has always wanted to move out of Singapore. Through a series of mordantly funny conversations, these young people gradually realize that what faces them is not the futility of life, but rather the transience and impermanence of it.
Synopsis: Filled with endless gripes about her familial troubles, Madam Chan joins her friends the Wongs on a local senior citizens’ 3D2N tour of Singapore, uninvited and much to the annoyance of Mr Wong. As the group travels from one tourist spot to another, the truth behind Madam Chans complaints slowly emerges.
