This was a misguided attempt to be a wandering traveller’s guardian angel.
Jae, a man on the way to his brothers wedding in Kuala Lumpur, comes across a beautiful backpacker trying to get out of Singapore.
He gives her his ticket but both end up losing their way anyhow.
Ridden by guilt and maybe a slight tinge of regret, he tries to save the situation.
He hoped for be the blossoming of a friendship, but he was already lost and had nothing else to lose anyway.
This comedy short about two Korean travellers trying (and failing) to get to their final destinations is a great look into the growing audience for Asian transplant stories.
‘Crossings’ screened at many international film festivals, including at in Korea, Singapore, the US, and in Switzerland.
