SWEET JUICES is a short film set in a world where Chinese food is the supreme currency with more power than sex, drugs and money. The story begins with SHIRONG, the mad dumpling chef and TONY, her lover and apprentice. They race against time to make juicy dumplings to pay off assholes chasing them for fines, bills and rent. 
They're given one opportunity to start a new life when tensions between the couple reach breaking point. Tony starts cooking fusion dumplings, undermining Shirong's status as the authentic dumpling master. Boiling with hatred and armed with their own unique flavours, the couple goes to war, but the power of delicious food transcends even love itself.
Filming began in February 2022.
Completed in October of 2022.

Currently submitted to international film festivals and awaiting news on its official premiere date.
