    • Synopsis
    • GONE SHOPPING is a darkly comical character study of three eccentric urbanites who escape to the shopping centres in search of a new frontier. Leading the repertoire is a tragically romantic 40-year-old tai tai (a wealthy lady of leisure) who desperately wants to be loved, followed by a feisty 8-year-old girl who desperately wants independence and finally an angst ridden 22-year-old 'Gen-Y' boy who desperately wants to find his manhood. This motley crew lead audiences through a journey of love, loss and lunacy in the heart of Singapore where they find that their dreams can be bought and broken. In the midst of it all, they also cross paths with other creatures of the mall, each of them with their own strange retail tales.
