Inspired by a true life account of Albert Ridgway Desilva during World War II.
Albert tells his story through a letter to his girlfriend Lydia about how people in Singapore set their differences aside and reunited under one race 'Singaporean'.
Being an Eurasian himself, he had no other place to call home, so he stayed, with a million others who called this place home.
Albert also tells the story of how Singapore was being defended during the early years of the war and those soldiers he met who would not give up the fight till the end.
