Grey Matters

灰色地带

Can we see the shades of grey in a society governed by black-and-white laws, norms and values? Trends. Technology. Times. When change is a fast-moving constant and circumstances could flip in a day, some Singaporeans have found creative ways to survive, live, and manoeuvre in the grey areas of this breakneck world. BDSM dominators, online scammers, friends for rent, illegal aestheticians, debt collectors, private investigators, exotic animal traffickers and sex shop owners. Some of us know them at a distance, some not at all. Do we truly understand what they do? Why they do what they do? Where lies that fine, grey area between the “good” and the “bad”, the black and the white? Join us as we delve between the layers, right into the heart of these Grey Matters. 在这个法律黑白分明的社会里,我们能看得到灰色地带吗?潮流蜕变,科技发达,时代变迁。为了在这个与时并进,瞬息万变的新加坡社会里生存,有些人想出了富有创意的新方法在灰色地带里游走。BDSM调教王、网络诈骗、出租约会、非法美容师、讨债员、私家侦探、非法贩卖野生动物和成人情趣用品企业家。他们与我们生活在这个社会当中,但是有多少人真正了解他们的工作?他们为何会选择这份工作呢?黑白之间,那条灰色界线在哪里呢? 和我们一起了解这些另类职业,探索灰色地带。
