Scattered about the globe, in London, Thailand, and neighboring Malaysia, the subjects of this expertly crafted, enormously moving documentary are Singaporean political exiles who fled their country decades ago to escape detention or worse for their beliefs and activism. Most will never be permitted to return in their lifetime, but all have created an extraordinary second life for themselves in an adopted homeland. The latest from leading Singaporean documentarian Tan Pin Pin (Singapore GaGa, Invisible City) doubles as a tender group portrait of these brave individuals, and of Singapore itself, as seen from afar by its harshest critics and most utopian defenders.
