In amusement parks such as New World and Great World, cabaret dancers like Rose Chan shone brightly. Despite the societal stigma surrounding their profession, these remarkable women exuded compassion towards the less fortunate. Championing charitable causes, they helped set up the Happy Charity School which provided free education to poor children in Singapore.

This film is based on the article ""Beneath the Glitz and Glamour: The Untold Story of the Lancing Girls"", written by award-winning author Adeline Foo and published in the Jan-Mar 2017 issue of BiblioAsia, the flagship publication of the National Library Singapore, focusing on articles about Singaporean history, culture and heritage.
