Jow Zhi Wei

Jow Zhi Wei studied at Le Fresnoy art school in France and at the Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore. Since 2010, he has been a member of the Golden Horse Film Academy in Taiwan. In 2014, he received the Young Artist Award from the government of Singapore.

Life is not the most fulfilling for sixteen-year-old Meng: Lounging at home with his grieving father on a daily basis, being excluded from his family's past, and forced into bullying other kids at school. Everything changes when he is thrown into a life-altering adventure that propels him into an exciting unfamiliar landscape.
