Jeanette Peh—a highly westernised Singaporean
Jeanette Peh—a highly westernised Singaporean student—decides to follow her dreams of acting to London, where she will hopefully also find her occidental soulmates.
On arrival however, she is dismayed to find that her teachers and classmates label her as one of the ”Asian students”. She adopts a British accent and even well-meaningly corrects the British students’ grammar, but that doesn’t make her popular for some reason. At least she’s doing well in school… until she gets to Baptiste Laroche’s class.
Monsieur Laroche wants her to perform more honestly by speaking in her native language. There’s just one problem: Jeanette is beginning to realise that she doesn’t know what her native language is. In fact, she doesn’t know who she is at all.
