Synopsis:

It is 1937, and she has travelled long and far to come to Singapore to work as a Samsui woman. He works for the British government as an undercover spy, with a mission to find out if the community of Japanese fishermen in Singapore was providing intelligence for the Japanese military. As part of his mission, he takes on the identity of a satay street vendor. They fall in love, her not knowing his dark secret, and him not knowing what war may bring.

Follow the star-crossed story of the Samsui woman and the Satay man, as their love grows from their first meeting and holds strong through the trials and darkness of war-torn Singapore.

The story comes alive through Food & Dance. A 5-course modern Singaporean meal is interwoven with Contemporary Dance into a unique showcase by Chef Nixon Low and choreographer Naomi Tan. Expect sensory enchantment as you are immersed in this interactive dining experience, and be part of a special journey that transcends time and space.
