A Waking (2019)

Directed by Clare Chong

Xuan, a 16 year old girl travels on girl tour with her mother and sister, but all the sightseeing and talkative tour guide leaves her numb and detached.

Curious as to what more the night has to offer, she ventures out alone as her mother and sister lay fast asleep in their hotel room.

As she wanders through the sleepless town, she coincidentally meets the tour guide and the bus driver at a skewer stall. The two men make advances on her, one after another.

She falls prey to their advances, and this incites reconstructs of hazy visions, entangling her dreams, memories and fantasies.
