Jasmine Leong is the heiress apparent to Phoenix, her family's billion-ringgit company known especially for its pork snacks. When her grandmother, the great Madame Leong, unexpectedly passes away, Jasmine discovers she is actually a Malay Muslim and this newfound identity threatens to upend her life and ambitions. Finding herself at the centre of a political controversy, and caught between two men who love her, 'The Accidental Malay' examines the human cost of a country's racial policies and paints a portrait of a woman unwilling to accept the fate history has designated for her.
