Filmed to celebrate Singapore’s anniversary as a nation, Homeland portrays the struggles and triumphs of a country and its people. The dramatic story of four generations of a family tenaciously striving for a better life mirrors the blossoming of an island nation. Extensive sets were created to re-enact the Singapore of 1880, the bombing of Singapore during World War II, the 1957 riots and the struggle for independence from Malaya. These historical re-enactments, combined with archival documentary footage and interviews with Singaporeans, present over 100 years of a people’s history.
