Ah Gu, a middle-aged man, has brought home a pretty, young wife from China, but he has to cope with her overly high expectations and increasing frustration and disappointment with life in Singapore. San San, an overweight single women, lives alone and contemplates suicide. A meeting with her mother's former employer triggers off a depression. While their parents are away, overbearing eldest brother Meng takes the opportunity to lord it over his rebellious younger sister, Trixie and little brother Tee. Meng's persistent interest in Trixies's personal life leads to first, an interrogation, then an argument, and ultimately something far more explosive.
