When We Were Bengs

In a small, colourful, and vibrant comic-book town, live two brothers, Heng and Bee. Heng loves to harass his younger brother. Bee, on the other hand, tolerates his older brother’s nonsense with great patience. Despite this, they waste their time together spying on a girl who lives opposite, and every afternoon take on the para-para dance machines at the games arcade. One day, Bee is kidnapped by Ang Ku Kueh, the notorious leader of the Red Demon Gang. Heng immediately goes to the rescue, only to find himself caught in a standoff. Will Heng sacrifice himself to save his brother, or his brother to save himself? Everything makes sense when the pretty girl who lives opposite shows up.
