Synopsis

On May 13, 1969, Eng and her mother watched a Chinese opera in Kuala Lumpur. Her father and brother were at the Majestic Theatre. A riot erupted amidst election tensions, and they lost contact. The Prime Minister declared a state of emergency. On May 13, 2018, Eng met Ah Mui, the opera chief who confronted the government on that day 49 years ago. They shared a moment of powerless remembrance of a more peaceful time.
