#
Director: Wang Jing (Breakfast); Anocha Suwichakornpong (Lunch); Kaz Cai (Dinner).
3 Asian Female Directors 3 Stories of Love in 3 Asian Cities Synopsis Helmed by three female directors, this omnibus features three films set in China, Thailand and Singapore respectively. Each story occurs at a specific mealtime, and seeks to interpret the frailties and complexities of love through different Asian perspectives.
