Oil palm estate in Sarawak

I came across this short film on youtube. It was filmed in Sarawak by 26-year-old Steven Yap and his childhood friend Tay Zhi Qiang (the actor). The film-makers tell a touching story of a son reminiscing over his father's legacy -- an oil palm estate.

Those who are not familiar with oil palm plantations tend to look at satelite pictures and assume it a sterile field of mono-crop. But to the people who live in the oil palm estates, there's a fulfilling life of sunshine, rain, gentle breeze, tears, laughter and love.

Most of all, the oil palm estate is home to more than 300,000 families of small farmers in Malaysia.
