SUMMARY
At the intersection where art meets life lies Ji Fan, a short film about the relationship between a Malay female corporate lawyer and a Chinese male chicken rice seller. Set in modern-day Singapore where the culture of materialism and superficiality pervade, Ji Fan is a social commentary masquerading as a pedestrian love story.

Wei Kiat is a Chinese chicken rice hawker who had his path in life chosen for him and leads an existence of droll routine. He is a 38yr old man living in public housing with his mother, an old-fashioned typically tart-tongued Cantonese woman who sells vegetables at the market.

Lydia is a Malay BMW-driving, all-rounded, over-achieving, corporate lawyer from an upper class family living in a big 4-storey house, whose atypical background and strong character had always attracted the white men in western countries that she travelled to or lived in. Throughout her life she has only had successful relationships with them despite the fact that she has always had a soft spot for Chinese culture and men— she is fluent in Mandarin, likes ancient Chinese Tang poetry, her idols are Chinese singers, Hong Kong and local (not Hollywood) actors, she only eats Halal Chinese food and is caught in a time warp of Chinese music and film from the 50s. In spite of all this, for some odd reason, no Chinese man has ever reciprocated Lydia’s feelings or taken notice of these very strong common denominators… until Kiat appears in her life.

When the love between Kiat and Lydia blossoms over one too many plates of chicken rice transactions and the discovery of deep commonality, will they be able to overcome the multitude of obstacles and judgment to fulfil their destiny? Or will they be fated to meet but destined to part, like the Chinese proverb 有緣無份(yǒu yuán wú fèn)?
