    • Synopsis
    • Passion and practicality collide in this clash of worlds, as a fast-developing nation finds itself unable to balance her newfound economic success with her waning heart and soul. THE KALLANG WAVE is the story of Singapore told through the dreams and pain of the nation’s footballers and the fans and staff who stand behind them. Glory, frustration, and a mounting sense of despair colour an impassioned debate about the heart of sport and the realities of economic prosperity.
      From interviews and match footage to history and coverage of significant events, THE KALLANG WAVE gives a voice to the people behind the scenes, and tries to give credit to the unsung heroes of Singapore’s football legacy, whom after years of tearful effort now find their values and achievements abandoned by the new generation of Singaporeans.
