Taking the lyrics sung in the tune D’Kolupo by No Good while displaying footages taken from the archives of Kuala Lumpur Ceria, the screens tell many yet one common tale of the trials and tribulations living in Kuala Lumpur city.

Lyrics excerpt from ‘D’Kolupo’
by No Good (Punk Gong, 2021)
Wei lo Awe,
kilik beg nok gi mano
where are you headed with the bag,
Mok nanok nasi dapur,
Ayoh tunggu atah paro Mother is in the kitchen cooking rice, Dad’s waiting on the patio,
Beli tiket bas nok gi Kolupo, hajat nok gi cari kijo Bought a bus ticket Kuala Lumpur bound, gonna look for a job
Balik kampung esok luso
tok tahu jadi gapo dio
When you come back home we don’t know what’s gonna happen to ya
