"In the first series, a group of English women in 1941 Singapore are shipwrecked while they try to escape the Japanese invasion, and are captured and put in a prison camp. They and their Dutch companions must all make drastic adjustments to and discoveries about their lives. In the second series, the group is moved to a new camp with a completely new pecking order and a particularly vicious camp leader. At the beginning of the third series, the prisoners are liberated and must re-adjust themselves to live in Singapore, in the aftermath of the war." - Kathy Li

It's 1950, and the British, Australian, and Dutch women who were imprisoned together in Japanese camps during WWII remember their promise to have a ten-year reunion in Singapore. Everybody's lives have moved on and changed, and each member of the group must reconcile herself to the changes that being a prisoner has made upon her life. Plans to stay in the country at Dominica's plantation, however, are disrupted when Communist bandits hold them at gunpoint and suddenly everybody's back in familiar territory, and wondering who the traitor among them is… - Kathy Li
