Mild-mannered schoolteacher Miss Vanda meets Chinese-educated engineer Victor at a Friendship Development Unit (FDU) party. Before their romance can blossom, she is cruelly struck by a TV set hurled out of a HDB flat in Toa Payoh. At NUH, neurosurgeons rebuild her into the perfect Singaporean woman (or so they think). But the new Vanda, now renamed Ruby, not only has amnesia, but she also has a microchip in her brain which causes her to pick up TV signals. Does Ruby’s plastic surgeon have more than a cosmetic affection for her? Will the luckless Victor ever find his Vanda again? What is Indian screen siren Vimila’s role in this convoluted tale? And where does the Sarong Party Girl figure in all this?
