Director Joyce Wong and producers Matt Greyson and Harry Cherniak tell us about their film and the visions they had while making it. A kind of personal tale for the director, who recalls stories of friends in the narrative of Wexford Plaza. The choice of showing a second point of view of the same story gives more depth and perspective, making the audience question what they have understood so far, and this is a good challenge for both film and audience to take.
Wexford Plaza: Betty works as a security guard in a desolate and depressing shopping mall. Besides the jaded panorama of her days, the fact that she is doesn’t fit society’s norms about bodyweight certainly doesn’t help her find her soul mate, who she unsuccessfully looks for using a social networking dating app. One day, at the mall, she meets Danny, who also has a load of problems, and it’s love at first sight. Unfortunately, things get complicated when a photo of a scantily dressed Betty becomes more public than expected.
