How is Singapore home to you ? On the Red Dot explores the question through three local filmmakers , Meng Ong , Sanif Olek and Ang Geck Geck . They’ve each been given only four days to shoot and edit a short film . Follow each filmmaker as they struggle with their scripts , audition actors and cope with unexpected challenges on set , to realise their vision of how Singapore is home to them . The second episode of this 3 - part series features Sanif Olek , whose feature film was selected as Singapore’s entry for the 2015 Oscars . His short film for On The Red Dot , “Homecoming” , is about a man who returns home from prison after 16 years , and finds himself struggling to come to terms with a world that has passed him by . It’s a tale of last chances – the prodigal son’s search for redemption .
