"PERTH is a personal journey toward a physical destination."


PERTH is the journey into the heart of Mr. Lee, a 51 year old part-time security guard and taxi driver. He belongs to a redundant generation, eclipsed by a fast paced elitist society that is mesmerized with education and status.

Harry desires to leave the antiseptic streets of Singapore for his "Paradise on Earth" in Western Australia. His attempt to migrate is complicated by him taking on a job ferrying prostitutes. This evokes painful memories of a scarred past. He begins to take an unhealthy interest in an abused Vietnamese prostitute, which awakens a dark and dangeous attempt at personal redemption.
