When they laugh, we rejoice alongside them. And when they shed tears, we feel their pain.

Spanning over six episodes, Anak Merdeka chronicles the lives of three friends – Salleh, Boon and Devi – beginning from the time Malaysia struggled for its independence right through to the 21st century.

Set in a funfair, where these three friends first meet, the journey of their story interweaves with our nation’s key historical moments and events over the course of 60 years. Their story is the nation’s story.


Produced by Angsana Production, supported by Khazanah Nasional Berhad
