This Is Where I Won't Be Alone
By Inez Tan
Short stories laced with pathos and observations on family and culture in the context of Singapore.
A pair of twins tries desperately to survive their education. A sentient oyster ponders the concept of making time. An unemployed man devises a social experiment with ants. A runaway sees a vision.
From the 1990’s to a future where people access information through chips implanted in their heads, from the Singaporean heartland to London, San Francisco and the moon, these stories hold in tension the strangeness of displacement and a deep yearning for connection in their relentless search for who and what to call home.
Read if you: watched enough A24 films to realise animals don't fare very well in them.
