50 岁的新加坡男子 吉姆 (周光炎 饰，《徒刑》，第69屆坎城影展一種注目單元)突然失去了高薪的白领工作，但他的自负和骄傲迫使他不得不向妻子(郑花如 饰，《疯狂富豪》)和女儿隐瞒这个残酷的事实，唯有好友维诺德(希瓦库马尔•帕拉克里斯南 饰，《一只黄鸟》，第69屆坎城影展国际影评人周)可以让他倾诉。
《夺还》大胆地颠覆了电影传统体裁模式，其诡异、多变的音景由2019年金马奖最佳原创音乐奖得主 张伟勇 创作。
50-year-old Jim (Gerald Chew, Apprentice, Cannes Film Festival 2016 Un Certain Regard) loses his high-flying job in status-conscious Singapore, but his ego and pride compel him to hide this from his wife (Amy J Cheng, Crazy Rich Asians) and daughter. His only confidante is his best friend (Sivakumar Palakrishnan, A Yellow Bird, Cannes Film Festival 2016 Critics’ Week). Desperately clinging onto the material symbols of his past success, he unlocks a hibernating malevolent force, with sinister roots in long-buried secrets. As his dream life crumbles around him, worlds collide, the lines between then and now become increasingly blurred, and Jim descends into a waking nightmare…
Repossession is a bold, genre-bending film, with an ever-evolving, haunting soundscape from Golden Horse Award-winning composer Teo Wei Yong (A Land Imagined).
