三轮车

2001

Synopsis

In a new age of modernisation, trishaw rider Heng and his fellow elderly trishaw riders must fend for themselves and keep from becoming outdated. Unfortunately, time is against them and with their age bearing down on them, it is a struggle to keep up with the times. Heng’s trishaw becomes damaged in an accident with a taxi and his regular mechanic has passed away so Heng tries to repair it himself but does it poorly. When his trishaw becomes unsafe to ride and even regular customers snub him and take taxis instead, Heng tries to rail against the symbol of modernity by racing after one. But his rickety trishaw and failing stamina are too much for him and as he pushes his trishaw along the street, Heng realises he and others like him may have become obsolete, nestled as they are in the heart of Chinatown.
