As told by James Seah, survivor of the 1961 Bukit Ho Swee Fire

Wikipedia describes it as "comparable to the London Fire" (though smaller in size)... 16,000 people lost their homes... A nation is built on PROMISES - kept. The story is a tribute to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, first Prime Minister of Singapore and all those who sacrificed to make Singapore what she is today. 

Commissioned by the Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng Citizens' Consultative Committee
First screened at the Havelock View Community Party cum Tree Planting Day on 4 November 2012. Guest of Honour: Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
