One Hour to Daylight is a social drama set in a Singaporean estate where cultural and social tensions threaten to divide its inhabitants. 

Multiple threads converge into one tapestry. A migrant lift technician from China dies in a work site accident and his wife travels to Singapore collect his body; a Malay lawyer and his family grapple with the ethics of ambition and success; a young Indian girl is forced to live with her grandparents, where they constantly knock heads due to their class differences. A jobless middle-aged man decides to rob a bank with his Bangladeshi coworker. 

Their lives, though separate, are intertwined - and all collide in the Curry Incident.
