Synopsis

THREE AND A HALF is the story of one building in three different eras. Fifty years ago, the building was divided between a school and an apartment, in which a young boy struggled with the pressures of pre-pubescent school life. Twenty years later, the same building became home to a brothel, where a young concubine dealt with her “first” client. Now, thirty years later, these same walls are inhabited by a soul-stirring old married couple who love, laugh and dance together, remembering times past. The story is told from the perspective of the walls of the house, which are witness to all the struggles and successes that encompass human life.
