Uncle Lim has come to visit his friend and ex-neighbour Uncle Mok. He’s armed with braised duck rice, Uncle Mok’s favourite.
They sit and reminisce about the good old days and how times have changed. Strangely, Uncle Lim seems to remember everything, but Uncle Mok can’t.
Also, Uncle Mok seems to be in a bit of trouble. It looks like his son has locked him out of the house in a fit of anger.
Outraged on his behalf, Uncle Lim calls the police. However, something is not right about the happenings.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
