1400





Synopsis

How far will you go for love? And once you have it, will it be enough? Those are the central questions for the characters in '1400,' a new feature film from director Derrick Lui and a talented ensemble cast. The elegant rooms and shops of a metropolitan Singapore hotel host a constant flow of human weakness: avarice, lust, infidelity. However, the hotel also sees the birth of pure love and friendship between unlikely partners as '1400' pulls back the curtain on the intertwined lives of the young and the old, the innocent and the cynical, the hopeful and the despondent. Filmed in an intimate style on location in Singapore, '1400' has an authenticity and emotional presence that cannot be denied.
