Even as it started in a sort of monotonous way,  viewers will appreciate the message of this short film.  The connection of the 3 characters lies not only in the fact that they all live in the Tiong Bahru estates but that all of them have to make crucial decisions and make a stand of such decisions.  The soon-to-be-father, the adopted girl and the grandma,  all of them are in introspection and  it is in defending their decision and fighting for it will viewers appreciate their situation more.  Laudable cinematography  and  acting was okay,  it was  a delight to encounter films like this that  engage viewers in   worthwhile storytelling with  a definitive resolution.
