Cages is set in the forgotten suburbs of modern Singapore. ALI’s attempt to escape repeated bad relationships ironically puts her before the man she resents most – her father, TAN. But, the truth is not always easy to face when her father reveals a dark secret of 20 years past; a past that may cost a lifetime of relationship.
