Unlucky Plaza

When a chance to save his ailing diner goes belly up, Onassis Hernandez, an émigré and single-father living in affluent Singapore, is pushed over the edge. He takes a motley group of citizens hostage in a designer bungalow and publicizes his act on YouTube. As the police and international media descend on the crime scene and riots break out in in the city, an increasingly desperate Onassis forces the situation to a violent, heart-stopping conclusion.

UNLUCKY PLAZA stars Adrian Pang, Judee Tan, Guo Liang, Shane Mardjuki and Filipino star Epy Quizon in a show-stopping performance as the beleaguered Onassis.
