At the start of Wonderboy, the camera pans to local actor Benjamin Kheng before a piano, dressed in the flowery garbs representative of the fashion of the 70’s, he looks a splitting image of a young Dick Lee. Through the film, we glimpse at the heartaches and sacrifices the singer-songwriter had to endure to be the persevering character that he is in the hallmark of Singapore’s rich entertainment history.
