In Season 2, the story starts during mid-1969 when Ah Chiam leaves her original troupe (Sin Sai Hong) and agrees to marry Hock.
Banished by her troupe followed by her sudden wedding cancellation, Ah Chiam is lost and aimless in life. While searching for a new purpose, Ah Chiam is soon recruited by a new wayang troupe led by the mysterious leader, Suan Jiah, and is inspired to rebuild her wayang career again. Along the way, she finds other individuals who are on a similar journey to bring new life and energy into dying arts.
