Singapore’s public housing, efficiently built for decades by the Housing & Development Board (HDB) and intended for families, is often celebrated for its role in nation-building. Despite the achievements, the national policy on housing and development is not without flaws. This documentary follows three single women who are striving for independence in their lives, at different stages of life, and juxtaposes them against the country’s ambitions.

Filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin observes the lives of these women from afar, letting events play out without interference, in order to be as realistic and authentic as possible, as the occupants struggle to preserve routines, traditions and aspirations.
