Language: English with subtitles
Country: Singapore
Rating: PG13


Tom returns home after a long work trip to realise that his children, George, and Julie, have grown distant from him and their mother, Patricia. Tom and Patricia share their frustrations about their children and Patricia confides in Julie’s cell group leader to learn more about her daughter’s behaviour. George appears indifferent to all that is going on but shows concern for his sister’s well-being. Conversations and confrontations reveal secrets and exposes issues with the family that may be worse than it seems.

Joshua Lim was born in Malacca and immigrated to Singapore when he was six years old. He produced his debut feature at the age of 24. She May Try was screened at Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin in 2006. He made his second feature The Olive Depression in 2008. Currently based in the US, Lim has made three more independent feature films, including The Seminarian (2010), that won the Directorial Discovery Award at the 2010 Rhode Island International Film Festival.
