Mata Mata

1949, the Japanese Occupation is over, Singapore has returned to British control, but the people are still struggling to pick up the pieces of their lives. 19 year-old Elizabeth Lee (Cheryl Wee) has just finished her Senior Cambridge exams and her mother, Yoke Lien (Aileen Tan) gives her two choices: find a job or get married. However, Elizabeth's feisty nature gets the better of her and she gets into a scuffle with gangsters, catching the attention of secret society member Lim Seng Hock (Daren Tan) and British officer Henry Ridley (Jason Godfrey).

Set in the 1980s, the third installment of Mata Mata, follows a new batch of police officers in a period where some of Singapore's most grisly and heinous crimes were committed, ranging from the Adrian Lim ritual murders to the Scripps body parts murder and Andrew Road murders. Elizabeth's daughter, Joyce returns to Singapore from United States and crosses paths with Seng Hock's son, Kiat. Will love blossom between them?
