從家庭問題開始,展開一趟國族歷史的認識之旅。來自馬來西亞的導演廖克發,為了探尋生命中缺席的祖父,拼湊出原生家庭的完整面貌,進而踏入馬來西亞近代歷史的溯流之中,找尋彷彿遺失的過去。包括殖民時代、抗日運動,共產黨組成,以及馬來西亞多族群的認同問題,都在故事的重建中一一浮現。導演旁白貫穿全片,彷彿提出對自身,也對民族的疑問,交織個人與群體的生命。

The story begins with a portrait hanging in a family home in Malaysia. The subject remained a family taboo until the director discovered it was his grandfather whose identity was hidden because he was a member of the Malaysian Communist Party. The director sets out on a journey to discover the secret history of his country through the eyes of his grandfather.
