The Singapore Grip follows the British Blackett family, who live in Asia and are caught in the conflict.

Walter Blackett is keen to make as much profit as he can despite the war.

He also plans to marry off his equally deceitful daughter Joan to his business partner’s son, Matthew Webb.

However, when Matthew arrives in Singapore, Chinese woman Vera Chiang catches his eye. This puts a nail in the works of the Blacketts’ greedy plans.

The period drama was filmed in Malaysia rather than Singapore as the country is now much more built up and looked different from how it would have done during the 1940s, when the story is set.
