1957: Hati Malaya= Heart of Malaya

1957: Hati Malaya= Heart of Malaya



"We Malaysians owe it to our founding fathers to stay united, bound together by our national language and heritage"


Four young Malaysians, Hali, Salmi, Ani, and Rafiq have been assigned to do a picture book of "1957". While two of them grudgingly carry out the request made by the publisher, Hali takes on the role enthusiastically. Along the way, they find themselves immersed in the characters, emotional moments, identifying with and finding meaning in the struggle of "1957". They weave the story of independence by transporting themselves back to the past. Ordinary Malaysians who fell in love, and found their love for the country override their personal emotions. The present characters find new meaning to "Merdeka".


"Prior to independence, our country went through various challenges, but the sacrifices made by our forefathers have resulted in us enjoying sovereignty, peace, and prosperity today. Therefore, I suggest that the younger generation- the future of the country, to learn and understand from history. "
