Synopsis:
Our story begins in November 1941, barely a month before the first bombing of Singapore by the Japanese. Though there were rumours of war, most Singaporeans thought the Japanese would never attack due to the British presence. Singapore was deemed to be the Invincible Fortress, and that it could never fall. But on February 15, 1942, the British surrendered and the Japanese Occupation began.

As war brings out the best and the worst of men, you will see suffering, anguish, cruelty, betrayal, greed and inconsolable sorrow in this serial. You will also witness hope, compassion, courage, dignity upheld, values unrelinguished and the resilience of the human spirit as it struggles to rise above the horrors of war.

This drama serial will invoke memories and lessons drawn from the war years for those who lived though World War II, and will serve as a wake-up call to those who take for granted the freedom we enjoy today.
