An untold story from the men behind the masks.

Director's Statement:

I’m always keen to read true stories, wanting to find the truth about everything that happened around us.

It was 26 years ago when I saw this historic event on television. The way the issue was handled, the way we reacted to it and the way we countered it, shows that Singapore can defend ourselves.

We had read about it all over the news and books and I felt this event had to be be archived and be a lesson learnt to show our younger generation.
