My Roots is a documentary series that intrigues and inspires us to learn more about who we are through our genealogy. In each episode, a well-known Singaporean goes on a personal journey of self-discovery and surprises, to trace his or her ancestry.
Through their stories we uncover a myriad of ancestral stories, mysteries and revelations that mould the collective identity of our immigrant nation.
In finding out about the lives, sacrifices and achievements of those before them, our celebrities gain a better understanding of where they come from. My Roots inspires viewers to explore and reflect upon the past of their families while tracing their own history.
