BE WITH ME, the latest film from director Eric Khoo (MEE POK MAN, 12 STOREYS), is a tapestry of three stories woven around the themes of love, hope and destiny. Although the main characters come from different backgrounds and lead different lives, they all long to be with their loved one.
MEANT TO BE is about an ageing provision shopkeeper grappling with loneliness. Just when he is about to give up hope, he chances upon an autobiography which changes his life.
FINDING LOVE follows the mundane life of a middle aged security guard who has two loves in life - food and a high flying professional who works in the same building he does. The first he indulges in with great passion, the second, alas, he can only admire from afar. He decides to bridge the divide with a letter.
SO IN LOVE is the bittersweet chronicles of a teenage love less ordinary. A chain of events spark off a flurry of SMS's which will drastically rewrite the blueprints of their lives.
Unknown to them, these different souls will share the same stage in a play written by Fate, one which involves the themes of love, tragedy and redemption.
The characters in the movie are fictitious except for Theresa Chan whose life story inspired BE WITH ME. Deaf and blind since she was 14, Theresa, who is now 61, is a remarkable woman who has triumphed over her disabilities to live an amazing life.
