Set in old Colonial days during the golden era of the Peranakans, a young sweet 14 year old Nyonya from a wealthy family struggles with love. She is loveless and does not believe in love.
Her neighbour's son, all of 17 years old, comes from a chinese immigrant family, an impoverished singkeh family.
What starts off as an antagonistic and prickly meeting between a pretty, sharp-tongued pragmatist and a dashing, handsome romantic will throw the two young lovers into a 40-year journey of just-missed opportunities, longing and heart-warming, selfless acts.
What lessons would they have learnt at the end of their journeys travelled separately, and apart? Will they manage to find each other in spite of four decades of missed chances and close encounters with each other? Or will they swing in tandem like the two doors of the Pintu Pagar – always to miss, never to connect with and always to long for each other?
