    In the wee hours of the morning on 8 Dec 1941, Japanese planes attacked Singapore by air under the cloak of the night. This is the beginning of the period of unrest in Singapore.

    With the death of Zhang Tianying (Allen Chen) and Zhang Huiniang (Joanne Peh) during the Japanese Occupation, Zhang Min (Lieu Yanxi) and Zhang Jia (Damien Teo) planned to go to Ipoh to seek shelter at Hong Shi (Desmond Tan) and his wife Lin Yazi’s (Jeanette Aw) place. En route to Ipoh however, Zhang Min and Zhang Jia were separated and the latter was severely wounded. Zhang Min eventually reached Hong Shi and Yazi's house after 2 days, while her brother was missing.

    After being rescued by Hu Weiren (Chen Hanwei), Zhang Jia acknowledged the latter as his father, with hope of seeking revenge for his father’s death. Growing up by Hu Weiren’s side, the intelligent and agile Hu Jia (Shaun Chen) learnt much about triads and shady dealings, and came into his own within a matter of years.

    Anti-colonialism sentiments were high after World War II. Zhang Yan (Romeo Tan) and Hong Dangyong (Andie Chen), who were once close as brothers, drifted apart as both had different opinions on how Singapore should achieve independence. Dangyong joined the leftists, while Zhang Yan on the other hand, chose to join Lim Yew Hock’s government, seeking to wrestle for political power in a peaceful manner.

    As Zhang Yan scaled the political ladder, he began to lose himself, starting to make merry with the powers that be, engaging in debauchery and taking bribes on the side. He was also in charge of revoking the license of the Association of Secondary Schools and taking action against students in September 1956. This pits Zhang Yan face-to-face against Dangyong and Hu Jia, and the tense situation is about to erupt any minute.
