In Singapore 1900,  young doctor Albert Lim loves the singing girl Ying.  His Uncle asks him to take a political position, to oppose the Colonialist Government.  Albert refuses because he wants to marry Ying and have a normal life.  But the love affair ends tragically.  Albert, heartbroken, vows to become the voice of the people.  He takes a seat on the Council: it is a first step towards democracy for Singapore.
