Synopsis of Returning Home: As we enjoy our daily lives, there are many unsung heroes who serve as our bullet proof vests to safeguard our lives. This film tells the story about the dedication of the heroes from the Civil Defence (APM), St John Ambulance (SJAM), Lions Clubs as well as Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (PBS), putting their lives on the line to save others. Sometimes people forget that they have families, too. They often sacrifice much of their time away from their own families, whilst their families await anxiously for their safe return. During this Chinese New Year, will the heroes return home safely?

Don't forget to catch this movie at your nearby cinema from 2 February onward.

I can see how the movie has relate to many of us in Malaysia during the pandemic and even right now as we are entering the endemic stage. The frontliners had really helped us and I respect their bravery and sacrifice especially when they have to leave their family at home and work so hard to save lives.

It's a heartfelt family comedy with happy and sad emotion that will definitely make an impression. Ah Boon and his grandma's interaction was so cute! Kudos to all the local young and old actors, actresses and crews who have came together to make this film.
