Where No One LivesDirected by Li Anne Liew
On one night in an old apartment building, a newly independent young woman, a pair of
dysfunctional siblings and an aging widow become part of a seemingly intertwining story separated by walls. Rory, alone in her dream city, is afraid that she has made a big mistake in moving away from home; A disgruntled Margaret contends with the various trials of her tough family on her birthday; Kai confronts his once close sister before he leaves home forever – all while sounds and interactions between the three rooms bleed into each other, reminding them of a bigger world and community outside.
