Retired for 30 years now, Senin, an 83-year-old Malay man, occupies his time crafting objects made out of wood. His client orders a handmade birdcage which will be completed in a week. He gets started on his project but is constantly interrupted by his duties as a caregiver to his ageing wife who is less mobile and active than him. He painstakingly cuts the pieces by hand and assembles them in his makeshift workspace.
