To commemorate 55 years of National Service (NS) in Singapore, media and entertainment company So Drama! Entertainment (SDE) has premiered its English short film titled I Remember Me. 

Directed by local veteran actor Tay Ping Hui, the film sees four men who became friends while serving their NS come together to help their former Basic Military Training (BMT) sergeant as his memory fails him. 

The friends decide to recreate some of the highlights of their BMT in order to jog their beloved sergeant’s memory, in this light-hearted and heart-warming story about the strong friendships and bonds forged when serving NS. 

Tay Ping Hui said: “For all Singaporean sons, we share a common experience of going through National Service. While our vocations might differ, the friendships forged during NS will bind us always.

“This short film is a tribute to the friendships and loyalties that have remained steadfast, even with the passage of time and fading memories.”

The 12-minute film is available to watch for free on POWER 98 Love Song’s Facebook page.
