The Incident by Sissi Kaplan is “a short experimental film about a strange encounter between a woman and a man. In the setting of a nocturnal urban landscape, a woman narrates her experience of an amorous night and exposes her thoughts about desire, love and fear that made the story’s fulfillment impossible.” Viewers familiar with Singapore will recognize Mustafa Centre, an enormous 24/7 bargains shop, and, perhaps, the heartbreak motel.
