SYNOPSIS
Samnang, Tol, and Ah Kha are teenaged neighbors in the White Building, the inner-city tenement where the boys have lived together all their lives. Samnang now lives alone ever since his mother moved abroad for work. The boys dream their dance routine could reach the stage of the Cambodia’s Got Talent television contest, but their youthful habits are upended after the appearance of a mysterious woman in the hallway of the building and after Ah Kha unexpectedly reveals to his friends that he will move to the United States.

In a brief intermission from the boys’ narrative, a real White Building family complains in an interview about new construction next door, the dilapidated state of the building, and their plans to move out.

Weeks after Ah Kha’s departure, Samnang’s mother calls to say she will not return to Cambodia. He and Tol still plan to audition for the television contest, but they are disturbed by changes in the White Building, noticing a series of unexplained robberies. As they search for explanation, the mysterious woman reappears and the boys find most of their neighbors have moved out.

A few weeks later, Samnang and Tol arrive in Phnom Penh from the countryside, where they now live. They perform their television audition, and the crowd enjoys the show. Later that day, Samnang arrives at the White Building only to find it demolished.
