SYNOPSIS

This story begins with a man’s portrait hanging in my family home in Malaysia. The identity of this man has always been a taboo, until one day I discovered it was my grandfather, whose identity was hidden from me because he was a member of the Malaysian Communist Party. This is a journey to discover the secret history of my country through the eyes of my grandfather.
