Synopsis

For several decades, the Malayan Communist Party had fought a guerrilla war for independence in the jungles of Malaysia. Whilst this war lasted, they sent babies out of the jungle to ensure their survival. Boluomi is one of them. The past remains unknown until today. Yifan is a young Malaysian who left his country due to racial discrimination, and slowly he discovers his connection with Boluomi.
