From a poor village girl to a famous wayang (Chinese Opera) star, Titoudao chronicles the colourful and turbulent life of celebrated wayang star Oon Ah Chiam. Born into a poor family of 12 children, Ah Chiam’s father was always trying to get rid of her. She had to constantly prove herself in order to fight for chance to stay in the family.
Fate brought her and her sister Ah Dui into the famous Sin Sai Hong wayang troupe. There she rose through the ranks through hard work and grit to become their top star. But not before she had to protect her sister from a lecherous trainer and fight off a scheming competitor Ah Ngor. And will she find love with the troupe master’s son Ah Zai or a pushcart hawker Ah hock?
