  • Introduction
《动荡的年代》 Through the fateful lives of five friends, this story depicts the most difficult twenty years of Singapore’s history, from the start of Japanese invasion, to 1965 when Singapore gained its independence. Zhang Jia and Zhang Min lost their parents during the war, and had to seek refuge with family friend, Uncle Hongshi. On the way, the siblings were separated as Jia fell into a river. Min thought Jia died and grieved over her brother. With much encouragement from Hongshi’s children, Dangyong and Minghui, she eventually managed to get on with life and the three became inseparable friends. Unknown to her, Jia was actually saved by Hu Weiren, the man who tipped the Japanese off about their father. Jia pretended to stick with Hu, while waiting for a chance to take revenge. Under the influence of Hu, Jia became a notorious underworld figure as he grew up. After the war, Jia and Min’s cousin Zhang Yan returns from England and reunites with his childhood friends. Both Yan and Dangyong hope to transform the country, but with different methods. Yan joins the Legal Department as Prosecutor, while Dangyong and Min turn leftist and lead strikes. Minghui marries Yan under parents’ arrangement, and feels torn between her husband and brother, as tension grew between the two men of different political stance. On the other hand, Jia survives in the underworld, while remaining a righteous and loyal man. By chance, Jia meets his sister and friends again, but chose not to acknowledge them for their safety. Yan becomes cruel and corrupt, and many times ruthlessly attempt to wipe out the leftist and underworld gangs. The five friends inevitably meet again, this time no longer bound by friendship, but by love, hatred, violence, and betrayal, played out against the tumultuous backdrop of the struggling nation…
