Plot

17-year-old Lian is a maid to a rich family in Malaysia, whose sheltered existence is shattered when she is sent to work at a small hotel near Bugis Street in neighbouring Singapore.

Singapore's infamous, immoral Bugis Street is resurrected and granted divine immortality in this tawdry and over-the-top comedy/melodrama. A bevy of gorgeously attired, love-lorn transgender prostitutes blaze across the screen in a firestorm of sequins, squeels and drunken American sailors.

Notes

  1. Singapore's Bugis Street was renown in the 1950s-1980s for its night gathering of transgender persons, making it one of Singapore's top tourist destinations during that period.
  2. In the mid 1980's, Bugis Street went under major urban redevelopment into a modern shopping complex, as well as the construction of a subway station, which ended the area's prior nightlife for transgender persons.
