Enoken no chakkiri Kinta 'Zen' - Mamayo sandogasa - Ikiwa yoiyoi

76 min

Towards the end of 17th century...

...massive tin deposits were uncovered.

...in the district of Kinta.

A discovery that marked

Malaya on the world map.

As a result of this discovery...

...throngs of laborers migrated

from South China.

Many were deluded by

the tin-rush dream...

...but they were traded as slaves.

Livelihood were harsh.

They worked the land

without reservations.

In the transition of time...

...people and land

were woven into one.

Though foreign yet familiar...

...this enchanting land

became home to many.

Scum bag!

Don't hit me.

Sunrise and sunset...

...this is the order of nature.

We thought destiny is

within our grasp...

...but we're are susceptible

to our feeble mind.

Tin Sok fostered four

young men under his care.

With resilience and persistent...

...they triumph in this turbulent times.

Dragon, full of

integrity and prudence...

...feared for his iron fists.

Blaze, reserved and scheming.

A Taichi expert...

...cold and aloof.

Ace, persistent,...

...brave for a cause...

...and goes all out,

and fights to the bitter end.

Tiger, impulsive.

Defy conventions...

...fast as lightning,

light as a feather.

Untold stories are abundant.

Filled with bliss and delight,

pain and grief.

Each are significant

in their own right.

Life is unkind to these miners as...

...they toil the land everyday...

...despite the forces of mother nature.

Whether rain or shine...

...they have no one to turn to...

no place to hide.

Day in day out...

...they toil the abundant land.

Romance is the most

beautiful melody in life.

When sorrow looms

and hopes in despair...

...this is the solace

to soothe desolation.

Exhausted by labor...

...weary and worn out...

...what kept them motivated?

Would their distance loved ones...

...be able to feel their sorrows?

My Japanese

counterpart is here today.

Please let me introduce our guest,

Mr Yoshimura.

How are you Mr. Yoshimura?

Mr Yoshimura

enjoys cultural dance.

Master Sam, this is our

head of tin mine, Tin Sok.

Tin Sok!

Master Sam!

It's an honor to meet you!

And they are?

This is my beloved wife...

...my lovely daughter Dan Dan...

...and her charming friend from

Great Britain, Rose.

Please have a seat.

The tin business has

brought you fortunes!

We've been partners for years...

...and I'm very interested

in this business.

I'm considering investing

as the potential is limitless.

Dinner's served!

Why it's the same dish everyday?

We worked so hard...

...yet suffer from hunger everyday.

Go on, finish your food!

We'll have to find a way

to solve this issue.

Are you with me?



We'll ask Tin Sok to arrange

a meeting with the boss.

That's right!

We'll request a meeting

with Master Hoong!


Tin Sok,...

...we've never complained...

...but lately, we're really strained.

I don't think we can keep up.

Our comrades are either ill or injured.

We can't go on like these.

What should we do Tin Sok?

Let's bring this issue to Master Hoong.

Alright then, Dragon and Tiger,

go see Master Hoong.

Yes! we'll head off now.

Don't need to hurry.

Master Hoong is a busy man.

I'll inform you when its time.

We'll see him this full moon,

which is the 15th of the month.

Both of you wait here!

Master Hoong,

Dragon and Tiger,...

...workers from the mine

are here to see you.

Let them in.

Yes! Master Hoong.

Master Hoong will see you now.

Master Hoong.

You're Dragon and Tiger?

Yes, Master Hoong.

We're here on behalf of...

Tell Tin Sok that...

...he don't have to

worry about the matter.

Take the rest you need.

The issues will be settle soon.

Thank you, Master Hoong.

We'll leave now.

Take care.

Master Hoong,

the Japanese investors.

...had joined forces with you.

It's a good sign.

Are you interested to participate?

Of course!

Then, someone has to be replaced.


Today is the 15th of the month...

...perfect timing for eradication.

This dish is set to go out!

Tin Sok's here!

Tin Sok... Tin Sok...

Please sit down.

It's auspicious 15th today,

there's plenty for everyone.

Go on, enjoy your meal.

Hope Dragon and Tiger

will bring good news.

Enjoy your meal.

Enjoy your meal.

Yes, Tin Sok!

No one escapes!


Pull him aside.

Save yourselves. Run!

Tin Sok, Tin Sok...

What actually happened at the mine?

Why are you here?

We were betrayed

by our employer!

We were ambushed too!

Why these happened

at the same time?

Why are you here?

Where's Tin Sok?

We got separated!

Dragon was wounded in the throat...

I fear he won't be able to speak.

Today's weather is perfect.

Yes, indeed.

I think I heard voices.

There's someone in there.

Quick, they need help!

Bring them back to our village.

What happened to them?

Who are they?

Be careful.

He's severely injured, help him.

Where is Tin Sok?

We have to save Tin Sok.

Tin Sok?

Tin Sok?


Yes! Tok.

What's his condition?

He'll be fine.

Don't push yourself.

Take a rest.

Tin Sok...

They must be referring to

Tin Sok, my old friend.


...bring 2 of them along with you...

...and go look for Tin Sok.

But Tok, who are these people?

They may endanger us.

Abu, just follow my orders!

Yes, Tok!

we settled happily.

We worked day and night...

...with a hope that one day...

...we'll be able return to our homeland...

...with better living.

Because we've shed our blood

and sweat in this land...

...from sunrise to sunset

we've become part it...

...and this has become our new home.

From now on...

...we are a family.

This is where weII eat,

sleep and work.

This is the head of the tin mine,

Tin Sok.

Tin Sok!

I know that your arrival in

this foreign land is not easy.

I have some words of wisdom for you.

There are rules for workers in the mine.

The leaders will help you through.

But be warned...

...life in the tin mine is tough.

Do not attempt to escape.

You're only risking your life.


Yes! Tin Sok.

Just focus on your work...

...save enough money...

...and in no time you'll be a free man.


Yes! Tin Sok.

Dragon will arrange

your respective work.

Dragon will teach you in

regards to the work assigned.


Yes! Tin Sok.

Blaze will arrange your lodging.

Let me also remind you that...

...working in the tin mine is exhausting.

Remember to eat and sleep well.


Yes! Tin Sok.

Ace will explain the

rules and regulations.

It's of utmost importance...

Any queries, consult Ace.


Yes! Tin Sok.

Take them for a bath.

From now on...

...there's no fooling

around here anymore.

Lastly, the cutting of braids ceremony.

It signifies a new beginning.

We're also aware that...

...from now on we won't be

able to return to our homeland.

This could be a turning

point for everyone.

Embrace this in good faith!


Never thought this 15th

of the month brought...

...such a terrible nightmare.


No time to waste, run!

We killed someone!


What really happened that day?

What about our future?
