Synopsis: 

Unfolding during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, Anthony Chen’s autobiographical feature debut follows an ordinary Singapore family struggling to hold things together under increasing domestic and financial pressures. When the family finds a Filipina nanny to reign in their misbehaving child, they discover that they may have inadvertently hired a surrogate mother.
