SYNOPSIS: Adam silently invites the viewers to enter his small and troubled daily routine in the city of Singapore. Every gesture and every frame express a tangible tension: a child about 9 years old who desperately tends towards something, something so simple. Adam is the innocence that is about to break in the primitive and universal seeking for an identity, for a place to find himself.
