SYNOPSIS

It is Monsoon season in Singapore and the city is pouring with rain.

Wet Season follows the plight of Ling, a Chinese language teacher, whose marriage and school life are fraying apart because she is unable to bear a child. But an unlikely friendship with a student helps her reaffirm her identity as a woman.

Musim hujan telah tiba di Singapura dan seluruh kota dibasuh oleh hujan. 

Wet Season menceritakan keterpurukan Ling, seorang guru bahasa Cina, yang pernikahan dan kehidupan sekolahnya porak-poranda karena ketidakmampuannya mengandung seorang anak. Namun, sebuah persahabatan aneh dengan seorang murid membantunya dalam menguatkan kembali identitasnya sebagai seorang wanita
