Storyline

The marriage of rubber-plantation owner Jim Frazer and his wife, Liz, which has survived many disasters, including years in a Japanese internment camp, is at a breaking point. Under constant threats of bandit attacks and concerned with the safety of his plantation and the people on it, Jim spares no time for his marriage. Liz is to take their young son, Mike, home to school in England, and, without telling Jim, does not plan to return. A neighboring plantation is attacked and the owner killed just prior to her departure. Liz and Jim get arms and ammunition from a near-by town, and a night of terror follows as the bandits attack.

Rubber planter defends his home against Communist Terrorists
18 November 2002 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This is a terrific movie about a little known time period. The setting is a rubber plantation in Malaya circa late 1940's, early 1950's. The British owner and his wife defend the plantation against Communist Terrorists. Very good action and tries to tell the actual events in a truthful manner. I highly recommend it!! Wish it were out on DVD. I'd buy it!!
