In Last House Standing, Mr. Jiang has watched over Shanghai through the years. As a young tomboyish lodger staying at his soon-to-be-demolished house questions him, his remarkable life gradually unfolds. In Innocent, the director first found out about her aunt's suicide at the funeral. Discovering the truth by reading between the lines of relatives' testimonies, a sense of stagnation in Singapore seeps through.
