A wistful and funny fantasy by Wishing Chong, a hit-maker in theatre and film whose works spread from advocacy to entertainment

In that summer, we became adults.

This wordless fantasy is a requiem for children who lost their lives during the war, and also a cheer to children who live now and those who used to be children.

Our journey started just as always, but something was different in that morning. We had a quarrel about a tiny thing. We saw many nightmares. When you realise, you are in a middle of a war. We became ghosts. And we became adults.

Just like that day the stars are twinkling.
