The final of three local feature films produced by the Chong Gay Organisation in the mid-1970s, Two Sides of the Bridge chronicles the relationship of a young couple, Rufei and Lingfeng, who face the pressures of living in a rapidly transforming Singapore. While Lingfeng is contented with her job at a textile factory while attending night classes to improve herself, Rufei is lured by a high-paying job at a money-lending firm and gives in to material desires and self-indulgence. Returning to his rural home in Kelantan to evade a heavy debt, Rufei finds quietude but becomes embroiled in a ploy by drug traffickers and is eventually prosecuted for his crimes. The only Chong Gay film made by a local cast and crew, it appealed to audiences of the time with its “healthy”, realist portrayal of life in urban Singapore.
