The true story of China-born Janet Lim, who was sold into slavery as a young girl in 1930s Singapore. When Singapore falls to the Japanese in 1942, she escapes by ship, but when it’s bombed and sinks, Janet floats at sea for days close to death. Rescued by fishermen then captured by the Japanese, she narrowly escapes sexual-imprisonment as a comfort woman and is tortured. An inspirational autobiography of a true heroine.
