Royston's Shorts is a compilation of acclaimed short films by Singaporean filmmaker Royston Tan.


Trois élèves d'école primaire : Kok Pin, Boon Hok et Terry, que leurs performances scolaires relèguent déjà à l'arrière ban de la société, croisent sur leur chemin l'institutrice qui croira en eux. Revisitant l'éternelle et irrésisitible figure du cancre, Jack Neo, le roi du box-office de Singapour, livre ici une satire sensible de l'esprit de compétition qui règne au sein de la société singapourienne et s'attache plus particulièrement à dresser le portrait de la communauté chinoise. Devant le succès populaire remporté par le film, le gouvernement a mis en place des modifications dans le système éducatif...

The film stars three real-life juvenile gangsters, all aged 15, giving an accurate depiction of Chinese teenage gang-life in the Singapore suburbs. The 2003 film features two more gangsters as characters as well as a fight sequence with more affluent English-educated Singapore youths. Rather than scripting the movie or employing professional actors, Tan attempted to capture the troubled lives of his characters in realistic fashion, apparently without much prior scripting.

Zhang Xiao Wu est un jeune garçon d'une dizaine d'années vivant à Singapour. Il est livré à lui-même, entre une mère partie à l'étranger et ne le contactant que par téléphone et un père invisible dont on ne sait rien. Un jour, Jung, un coréen de trente ans dépressif emménage en colocation dans l'appartement. Il travaille la nuit et se couche chaque matin à quatre heures trente en prenant de puissants somnifères. C'est à ce moment que le jeune garçon vient l'observer. Il consigne ses découvertes dans un cahier. Il mène ainsi une vie monotone et solitaire, cohabitant avec un étranger qui semble ne pas le remarquer. Il n'arrive même pas à vivre normalement à l'école où il rattrape ses nuits sans sommeil. Peu à peu, le jeune garçon, malgré la barrière de la langue, va tenter de lier connaissance avec le jeune homme et s'ingénier à construire une impossible amitié dans une ambiance qui flirte avec le surréalisme.

The film's storyline revolves around the lives and families of three students in the EM3 academic stream, Terry Khoo (Huang Po Ju), Liu Kok Pin (刘国彬 Liú Guóbīn; Shawn Lee) and Ang Boon Hock (洪文福 Hóng Wénfú; Joshua Ang). Terry, pampered and from a rich family, is a meek and obedient boy, with a domineering mother (Selena Tan) and a negligent businessman father (Richard Low). Kok Pin is pushed to excel at school by his mother (Xiang Yun), but he shows a talent for art, not academics — much to the consternation of his family. Boon Hock and his mother struggle to make ends meet by running a small wonton noodle stall; to make up for the lack of a father figure, he places high value on loyalty and "manliness" in his friends.

Liu Jianren and Chen Weijie are two ITP (International Technical Polytechnic, ostensibly a reference to the Institute of Technical Education) students who are constantly put down for being "dumb" despite the fact that they display a talent for designing and creating gadgets. Jianren comes from a wealthy single-parent home and is estranged from his mother and younger brother Amos, a fluent English speaker. He joins the gang of a local loanshark and becomes a runner. Weijie's father is a compulsive gambler who frequently swings from loving husband and father to crazed gambler running from loansharks. To complicate matters, his younger sister Nicole is academically gifted and pampered by their mother, thus causing frequent quarrels and misunderstanding amongst them. Unknown to the rest of them, Nicole becomes involved in a serious cyberbullying case and later becomes a victim of bullying herself.

Upon finding a wagon under attack by bandits, two black bounty hunters, Boss and Amos (Fred Williamson and D'Urville Martin, respectively) intervene and save Clara Mae, a black woman (Carmen Hayworth). Upon inspecting the bodies, the bounty hunters find several have rewards to their name and one holds a letter from the mayor of the nearby town San Miguel inviting him to become sheriff on the recommendation of fugitive Jed Clayton (William Smith). The pair take Clara Mae to safety in San Miguel and meet Mayor Griffin (R.G. Armstrong). Knowing that there is no sheriff and holding proof that the mayor intended to give it to a gang member, Boss is able to outsmart the mayor and intimidate other members of the town council into giving him the position. As sheriff, Boss and Amos keep the peace and enforce several "Black Laws" such as issuing fines or periods in jail for calling either of them a "nigger" in public. In his duties Boss meets Miss Pruit (Barbara Leigh), a white schoolteacher, who initially offends Boss by talking of the fond memories she has of her family's black slaves, but earns his forgiveness and develops a romantic interest in him. When a gang of Jed Clayton's men meet the mayor in the town saloon to extort supplies from the town (an arrangement that the mayor allows on the understanding that the gang will do no harm to the town or its citizens), Boss and Amos kill one gang member and arrest two more - with one prisoner being killed as he attempts to escape town assisted by the mayor.
