Unlucky Plaza


When a chance to save his ailing diner goes belly up, Onassis Hernandez, an émigré and single-father living in affluent Singapore, is pushed over the edge. He takes a motley group of citizens hostage in a designer bungalow and publicises his act on Youtube. As the police and international media descend on the crime scene and riots break out in in the city, an increasingly desperate Onassis forces the situation to a violent, heart-stopping conclusion.

“A nail-biting comedy thriller from one of Asia’s most exciting new directors” (Toronto International Film Festival), Unlucky Plaza stars Adrian Pang, Judee Tan, Guo Liang, Shane Mardjuki and Filipino star Epy Quizon in a show-stopping performance as the beleaguered Onassis.

“Ken Kwek keeps world-within-a-world film authentic with flawed, rounded characters, slick editing and surprising plot twists.”
– The Straits Times
