The story is about two good friends who grew up with genuine love for the Getai culture, a form of art with stage and song performances. Getai has a historical tradition in Singapore. After being blessed by the Getai Goddess, the two friends become the most popular Getai duo of the country, called the Papayas.

If you are not Singaporean, avoid it !... well if you are Singaporean... go take a walk at the Chinese Gardens instead...
Let's make a test... Remove every songs from this movie, show an edited version of 881 without any music... What will u think ? Even for the few minutes left of the movie (yes, the songs are most of the movie), it will be a very boring story, without goal and with bad actors...

Then you will understand me but you won't understand why the director choose the most easy way of bringing popular songs on the screen instead of a writing a credible story... Popularity ?
