"Cheeky, powerfully tender, evocative and haunting, touching us in a dreamlike way that forces us to reflect on our own need for human contact” - ShadowsOnTheWall
This story of two very different characters is less about friendship than about a shared experience and appreciation of solitude.4:30 starts with Xiao sneaking into Jung's room and stealing from him. Just as getting intoxicated is a habit for Jung, who only staggers back to his rented room when drunk, soon theft for Xiao Wu becomes equally as compulsive.
However Jung's addiction manifests itself all too tragic ways. We soon realize that Jung's true intention for staying in Singapore is to commit suicide. It is only through Xiao's encounter with Jung, and his failed bid to end his life, that he begins to understand his true fascination with Jung.
