Love is so short and forgetting is so long

Chapman, who’s been living in Singapore for many years, returns to his boyhood home in Yuen Long,walled village, after the death of his adoptive father. He finds that the house is filled with “ghosts”, of his parents and of his younger self. Chapman talks and interacts with all the “ghosts”, relives important moments from his youth, and comes to grips with his complicated feelings for his adoptive parents. Through Chapman’s conversations and interactions with the ghosts in his home, we see both why he loved his parents and why he was so eager to leave them far behind.
