A Smuggler And A Sex Worker Dream Of A Different Future

Tightrope (鋼索)

A young Chinese man comes to Singapore for the first time and rents an apartment with a sex worker. When they become friends, the man reveals that he is a smuggler and wants to make quick money then head back home to start a new life. The sex worker also shares the same hope of going home after making enough money. They both picture themselves as tightrope walkers, surrounded by fears but pushing by hope. Two tightrope walkers, but one will fall.

來自中國的男子第一次來到了新加坡,並與以為性工作者同租了一所房子。當他們漸漸熟絡,男子更是坦承了自己是位想賺些快錢的走私者,這趟之後將會回到家鄉開始新生活。性工作者也訴說著自己同樣想會到家鄉的同樣希望。他們就像是一同站在鋼索上,懼怕高度卻又被生活的殘酷壓迫而只能不停的往前走。可是,兩人共享的一條鋼索,能走完的也只能是一人。
