Popiah ("spring roll" in Hokkien-Chinese dialect) pays homage to a transient Singaporean family with its past, present and eternal core. As we unravel the story of a son's estrangement from his father caused by their differences in value system and perception of life, this film becomes a lyrical symbol of an authentic form of love that survives against the threat of modernity.
