Passive everyman Ah Bee has just turned 30. He leaves his dull office job to join the Tiong Bahru Social Club, an exclusive data-driven pilot programme that aims to create the world’s happiest residents in the idyllic, pastel-hued neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru in Singapore. Employed as a happiness agent, Ah Bee is assigned to take care of Ms Wee, an elderly resident obsessed with cats with no belief in Tiong Bahru Social Club’s mission. He is matched up with a fellow happiness agent, Geok, and promoted to helm the Community Complaint Centre. 

The film takes a satirical look at Singapore’s preoccupation with results-driven practicalities, it imagines a society where everything—including happiness—is quantified and managed.
