During the course of our life, we form many types of relationships. While these bonds are strengthened by the precious moments we spend together, increasingly we’ve become accustomed to a new way of being alone, and yet together.

But there’s hope. And all it takes is four minutes to change your relationships for the better. That’s what Singapore’s leading life insurance company, Prudential, has set out to prove in its heart-warming “social experiment” campaign.
