Chan Kin Fai flies 14092.2 km to Los Angeles from Singapore to escape from his love, Lau Win Kit, but he ends up calling her everyday at 9:30a.m., Singapore time. Chan realizes that despite the physical distance, he is not able to maintain emotional distance. To cope with his futile attempts to control his feelings, Chan develops an obsession with measuring the exact distance and time between him and others. Through a stranger’s query, he is led to face the fear that had prompted his departure and admit the barrage of emotions he feels.
