In 1901, Australia passed a set of racialised laws around immigration commonly known as the White Australia Policy. It sought to severely limit the number of non-British immigrants to Australia. In the wake of the Second World War, Chinese and Malay men who had courageously defended Australia during wartime found themselves forcibly deported to Hong Kong and Singapore. Families were ripped apart, causing trauma that lasted generations. This documentary follows the descendants who battled this discriminatory policy, and reunites one Singapore family after seventy-five years apart from their Australian relatives.
