Alyssa and her father are not like other fathers and daughters. While most fathers tuck their daughters into bed, Alyssa’s father creeps into hers. She hides her secret by imprinting a mark on her body each time he touches her. Ink is a story about acceptance and the realistic look at the skeletons in each family’s closet.

2. Journey Home
The Journey Home is about family bonding, a reminder to audiences about the importance of a home and how we should cherish everything before it is too late, regardless of what challenges we are facing. The story revolves around Michelle, who is born in Singapore, but at a young age of nine, she is forced to migrate overseas with her family. In an effort to escape the new environment, Michelle decides to come back to Singapore for a break to stay with her aunt and cousin whom she was closer with, than of her own family. Through instances of a happy family of her cousin, Michelle reflects on her own family relationship. The near loss of Michelle’s aunt from a stroke, who is like a ‘second mother’ to her, makes Michelle realise the term ‘family’.
