  'Tiffin' is a beautiful short film that traces the changes in the landscape, hearts and minds of vibrant Malaysia over the span of a decade.

Shanti is a poor Indian girl, born into the life of a maid for a lonely Chinese grandmother, Nai Nai, who runs a tiffin food delivery business. Over the years, Shanti grows up with Nai Nai's love and affection despite their social and class differences. An unfortunate incident one day forces them to decide where their loyalties lie.

A personal journey that brings her back to Malaysia, 'Tiffin' is the latest project by Chor Ai Lene that echoes her effort to open hearts and minds through the universal language of cinema.
