Hiding Birds

Hiding Birds is a coming of age drama about a young Malay girl named Leila, who is torn between pursuing her relationship with a Filipino woman and following her traditional parents’ beliefs. Set in the backdrop of 1993 when Singapore was in the heat of criminalising homosexuality, Hiding Birds hopes to explore the struggles of fighting oppression of freedom in choosing a person’s preferred sexual identity, while confronting the internal battles of moral relativity that heavily involves the basic foundation of one’s identity: family and tradition.
