Her grandson is in New York and she’s in Singapore. He refuses to come home and she puts her foot down. She buys him a flat and he buys her a coffin.

A woman and a man are in love.
A third party buys a bed but gets nothing else. Three’s a crowd but no one wants to budge. Does love know no boundaries or is there just too much greed?

A criminal is on the loose.
