ABOUT


Two interns form a bond when they stay to take calls for a talk show amidst a controversial book-banning incident in Singapore. But when their personal convictions are put to the test, first impressions start to unravel.

BACKGROUND

––––––––––––––––––

In July 2014, Singapore’s National Library Board (NLB) sought to ‘pulp’ three children’s titles from its libraries – citing a ‘pro-family’ stance in face of the books’ references to same-sex parenting. By the time public debate ensued, one title had already been discarded. The remaining two titles were eventually reshelved into the adult section.
