A classic boy-meets-girl story in modern day Singapore. Or is it? Without Reason explores the challenges of an inter-racial relationship where a Chinese girl and a Malay boy struggle to overcome cultural differences, reconcile religious beliefs, and manage the expectations of friends and family. This coming-of-age story takes you on an unforgettable quest for love and the search for identity.
