The Age of Terror is a dramatic mini-series about communist terrorism in colonial Singapore in the early 1950s. Set against the backdrop of the Malayan Emergency that raged from 1948 to 1960 and claimed thousands of lives, the series tells the story of a Special Branch detective racing against time to hunt down a ruthless communist killer behind a series of cold-blooded murders. An original story inspired by true events, The Age of Terror is produced by Singaporean filmmaker Dom Ow with assistance from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Singapore.
