Director Statement

Through a personal experience, my mum carried me when I was younger to cross the bridge from Malaysia to Singapore. When Malaysians are crossing the bridge everyday to work for a living, better income, they are also sacrificing their personal lives and time for their families and loved ones. I believe that they have a story to tell, the bridge that represents A hope. A dream. An open door to all opportunities who made them who they are today.
