Think about this. You're old. You're about to kick the bucket. You own a 3 room flat in Toa Payoh. You have 3 ungrateful children, of which, one can't stop thinking about her inheritance, the other can't remember who you are and the last doesn't even want to acknowledge you as her own. The only one who you can trust can't even stand up on her own two feet. What do you do?

Washing dirty linen in public couldn't get any dirtier than this. Based on a true story, but of course with drama sikit! Awake with Nenek addresses the age-old question that has been on many Singaporean's minds since the word HDB came about. "Who's going to get the 3 room flat?", even if they don't necessarily deserve to get it.

Awake with Nenek is a comedy that will make you laugh, cry, jeer and even wonder if your own relatives are doing the very same thing behind your back right now.

Imagine a world, barren, bruised and utterly destroyed. Imagine growing up in this world and never knowing what a tree is because you've never seen one. Imagine being the people, of the only two cities left in this world and there are two insatiable giants turning on you because there is nothing left to devour. And all you hear at night are distant screams, knowing that maybe tomorrow it might be your own. Imagine.

Will you succumb and let those fat greedy fingers find you hiding in fear in that dark damp cellar? Or will you put an end to it all, by fighting for what's left of your world. Fighting because you want the world to live.
