    • Synopsis
    • Based loosely on the historical document entitled ‘Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa’, ‘The Malay Chronicles: Bloodlines’ is an action-packed epic feature film, with mythical characters, magical moments and dazzling visual-effects sequences. The year is 120 AD… a time when the Roman Empire was at the height of its power, during the reign of Hadrian. Meanwhile in China, the Han Dynasty was firmly cemented as the ruling empire and expanding into Central Asia. Merong, a descendant of Alexander the Great, was asked to escort a Roman prince to Southeast Asia, to meet and wed a beautiful Chinese princess from the Han Dynasty on neutral grounds. However, the pirate nation of Geruda had other plans and kidnapped the Chinese princess to use as ransom. Will Merong be able to rescue the Princess and re-unite her with her betrothed in a marriage that is set to bring together two great civilisations from the East and West?
