A collection of 6 short films from assorted ethnic Chinese directors from South East Asia. Originally titled Homeland and Diaspora, each director is invited to make a short film that contemplates the notion and relationship between the Chinese Diaspora and China. Aditya Assarat‘s Now Now Now tells the story of two cousins, one Thai, one Chinese, and their reunion in Bangkok after not seeing each other for many years. Royston Tan's Popiah follows one Singaporean family's annual tradition of getting together and making Popiah. Sun Koh's Singapore Panda portrays a Singaporean radio performer's redundancy as his company is bought over by a Chinese corporation.

Midi Z's Burial Clothes sees a young woman traveling back to her village in Myanmar to attend to her grandfather's funeral. Tan Chui Mui's A Night in Malacca imagines a conversation between herself and a ghost of the past, referring to the travelogue of Chinese writer Yu Dafu, who wandered through Malacca in 1942. Finally, Tsai Ming-Liang's Walking on Water sees him returning to his hometown of Kuching in Malaysia to ruminate on a place in decay that still holds a special place in his heart.
