Inspired by the movie Ghost in the Shell (2017), "Await" sets against the backdrop of Penang's heritage shophouses. It portrays the struggles of the once-thriving traditional craftsmanship, such as blacksmithing, amidst modernization. The melancholic rain scene serves as a metaphor for the obstacles faced by these artisans, while the title "Await" embodies the piece's longing and hope for a brighter future and yearning for the return of a bygone era. Indeed, the unrelenting rain has transformed the city into a water city, symbolizing the depth of these challenges and the resilience of traditional artisans.
