《一只黄鸟》：Logline A man just released from prison is not welcomed home by his mother. Eager to locate his wife and daughter to build a new home, he instead learns that his past actions have led to irreversible tragedy. This empowers him to save his daughter, at any cost to himself. Synopsis It is an unwelcome homecoming for Siva, a Singaporean-Indian ex-convict, haunted by a tragedy in his past. Released after eight years behind bars and dejected by his mother’s coldness, he leaves home in search of his ex-wife and daughter. His old friend denies any knowledge of their whereabouts and instead leads him back into crime. Finding him sheltering in ‘void decks’ (the open public access corridors found beneath government-built residential housing in Singapore), the police force him to meet with a social worker; a woman also dealing with her own fears. One night, Siva saves a Chinese prostitute from a violent man. She looks up to him as a kindred spirit in a brutal world, giving him a first chance to rebuild his identity, but she is soon deported back to China. His world comes crashing down still further when he discovers his friend has betrayed him, and has been secretly sheltering Siva’s family in a rented apartment which he uses to store contraband. Siva tries to save them from their plight, as he comes to terms with both salvation and loss.
