The documentary invites viewers to observe a full day shift of two individual’s delivery riders(in Singapore and China), as we immerse ourselves in the changing environments of sights, sounds and sensation of rider’s journey. With the film being structured around the start to the end of the rider’s day we explore notions on the relationship the society has with out food in this age of food delivery in the pandemic. The emotions, the state of mind and the appreciation of our food or the lack thereof.
