On the day he is to return to London, following a visit back home to Singapore, he finds himself at the void deck of his apartment building torn between staying put in London or moving back to Singapore for good.


As he ponders this, the void deck triggers the memories and transience of the relationships he has with the people, places and things in his life.

Last of Their Generation is a reflection on first-generation immigrants in the 21st century and the state of being in-between the spaces and memories of wanting to move forward but feeling like having never truly left.
