The legacy of the Japanese Occupation of Singapore still resonates today. But what of those from the island who fought on battlefields thousands of miles from home? Forgotten Heroes follows the stories of four courageous individuals from Singapore who found themselves in far-flung theatres of war. From the blood-soaked beaches of Northern France to the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, from the violent skies over southern China to the brutalities of a Japanese POW camp in Java, this documentary recounts the incredible true stories of four Singaporeans who lived through turbulent times. Forgotten Heroes features an interview with one of the world's last remaining “Flying Tigers”, along with moving testimonies from our heroes’ families and leading WW2 experts. Stylish cinematography and bold animation bring these daring wartime stories to life.
