Tanamera - Lion of Singapore was a mini-series adaptation of best-selling author Noel Barber's epic story of passion, war and forbidden love set in the twilight years of the British Empire in Singapore and Malaya.
John Dexter is a dashing young Englishman from Singapore's wealthiest merchant family. Julie Soong is a beautiful young girl from one of the island's most respected Chinese families. Their love is forbidden - but nothing is as tempting as forbidden fruit. Banished to opposite sides of the world by their families, the young lovers try to build new lives apart - but are drawn back by fate to Singapore just as the Second World War engulfs the world.
Through the maelstrom and horror of the Japanese invasion they must fight to keep their love and help to rebuild their shattered paradise in the dangerous peace that follows.
