Perth: The Geylang Massacre

2004

Synopsis

Perth is the journey into the heart of Harry Lee, a 51 year-old part-time security guard and taxi-driver. Dreaming of migrating to Perth, a paradise of tranquil in Harry’s mind, he unwittingly gets entangled in the underworld of Singapore’s flesh trade when he starts to ferry prostitutes to clients in order to earn enough to carry out his relocation plans. When he takes an unhealthy interest in a Vietnamese prostitute who looks like someone from his past, it awakens a desperate and dangerous attempt at personal redemption from past transgressions, which also fuels the impotent rage that eventually determines his fate.
