When a young Cambodian village girl is sold off into prostitution, a brash American documentarian ventures into the underbelly of Phnom Penh to pursue her story, as she crosses paths with various other lives affected by the unspeakable terrain of the country’s sex trade.

Inspired by real events, 3.50 is a dramatic thriller that tells the story of a brash documentary filmmaker, Rebecca, who stumbles onto the story of Jora, a 15-year-old village girl who was sold into prostitution.

Rebecca investigates Vanna, the cruel female pimp that operates in the lucrative virginity trade, where young girls are sold off to the highest bidders. Venturing deep into Phnom Penh’s sex industry with reckless abandon, Rebecca spirals into a trap with deadly consequences.

3.50 is a multi-layered story that follows a foreign journalist, an underground doctor, a tuk-tuk driver, a street peddler, and a prostitute as they navigate the socio-economic tensions that allow poverty and its problems to flourish.

Filmed in English and Khmer, 3.50 is the first feature film co-produced between Singapore and Cambodia.

Frame x Frame is a film series initiated by The Arts House to showcase and explore the different dimensions of Singapore cinema. The quarterly programme will feature first-run screening of upcoming films as well as retrospectives of noted filmmakers.
