On May 13th 1969, Malaysia went through a rough time: after the election, violent riots erupted across the country with the objective of repelling Chinese people and cultural manifestations. On that day, Eng and her mother are watching the Chinese opera, in Kuala Lumpur. She manages to hide from the attack, but loses contact with her father and brother. In 2018, Eng runs into the Chinese opera chief who, on that fateful day, confronted the government over the opera’s permit. Together, they share memories of a more peaceful time.

Presented in the Venice Days section at the Venice International Film Festival.
