128 Circle

128 CIRCLE tells the stories of hawkers at a Food Centre in Singapore that has been at the heart of the community’s lives for almost four decades. These are the people – the human faces – behind the familiar food staples we have grown up with, and grow old with, in our neighbourhood. And these are stories of the ups and downs, the inspiration and the perspiration, of the challenges and the joys of being at the beating heart of a cultural heritage that has endured from the early days of Singapore’s history.

128 Circle returns, and this time our hawkers - Larry, Chandra, Aishah, Sherry and gang - must weather not only the storms of a global pandemic that spares no one; they must also contend with ups and downs of family, friendship and life in Singapore.
