In 1920, Singapore was still a British colony. There were increasing numbers of immigrants, especially the Chinese. Chinese immigrants He Ah Shui, He Fa, He Tian Sheng, and He Bing worked in a rubber plantation in Sembawang. One day, Fa died in an accident. Just before his death, he asked Ah Shui to take care of his fiancée, Ah Mei, who was coming to Singapore.
Spanning two decades, the story depicts the development of Singapore from her budding steps during post-independence in 1966 to her era of prosperity in the 1980s. “Our Homeland” features the partings and reunions of the main characters in “Tumultuous Times”, and through the disintegration of one family, brings out the changes of the era. As the plot develops, many major historical events will be presented - the Home Ownership Policy, implementation of National Service, withdrawal of the British troops, 1969 racial riots, explosion of tanker Spyros in 1978, collapse of Hotel New World in 1986, the global stock market crash in 1987 etc.
