Jack’s Car

Set in contemporary Singapore, Jack’s Car revolves around the lives of four young adults with disparate but equally harrowing familial problems. Their dilemmas finally converge in an act of playful recklessness as a temporary means of escape, to seize the moment and go down a path never taken.
