Ever wondered what it feels like living far away in a distant country, away from the familiar faces, places and traditions that remind you of home?

Anchored around themes of identity, connections and possibilities, A Sense of Home captures the real stories of six individuals who ventured abroad to pursue their dreams.

The six films were produced in collaboration with Singaporean film producer Daniel Yun and directed by local animation filmmaker Jerrold Chong.
