TIONG BAHRU SOCIAL CLUB

Comedy 1h 28m 2020

Ah Bee is a man of few words who, at the age of 30, lives with his mother. Seeking a future of his own, he signs up as a ‘happiness agent’ with Tiong Bahru Social Club—a project located in an ageing district of Singapore that employs ‘data’ to build the world’s happiest neighbourhood. In the course of a comedic odyssey, Ah Bee moves into a communal house, befriends his AI algorithm, Bravo60, and finds himself caught in a bizarre cult of happiness and technology. Soon, he is assigned to serve crazy cat lady Ms Wee who, although prone to take advantage of Ah Bee, is actually pure of heart. Events continue to spiral, as Ah Bee inherits Ms Wee’s cat, is matched with girlfriend Geok, and promoted to helm the Community Complaint Centre. Things look bright for Ah Bee, but something feels off…
