Singapore, hub of global capitalism. At the centre of this film is a woman who devotes herself to the blockchain-boosted art market. At the same time, in contrast, is an immigrant Tamil worker extolling the tranquillity of the island, and a champion archeress devoting herself to her discipline. In the accumulation of the neomanagerial common areas describing a less glorious reality (the art seller is also a cleaner), a ferocious satire breaks through, exposing neoliberal Newspeak and the total commercial exploitation of art.
