About the series:
In My Parents’ Shoes follows three children as they return to their parents’ homeland to rediscover their roots. The children, between the ages of seven and 11, have spent most of their lives in Singapore, after their parents settled here either as new citizens or permanent residents. The parents, who are from China, India and the Philippines, celebrate their children's integration into Singapore but at the same time, worry that they may lose their traditions. They fear their children may have become too used to the good life, with little idea about how they themselves grew up. In the first of four parts, the parents share their ups and downs of adjusting to Singapore society, and decide to give their children a taste of life in their country of origin.
