The last film of the "Nanyang Trilogy", Moon Over Malaya provides an elegiac end to the trilogy.

Patrick Tse plays Ngok Ming, a young man devoted to becoming a teacher. He receives assistance from a pair of like-minded siblings, Tsi-wo (Keung Chung-ping) and Suk-ho (Patsy Kar Ling). During a school fundraising event, Ngok Ming falls in love with Cho-lin (Nam Hung), a rich heiress, and marries her soon after. However, their conjugal bliss is disrupted when Ngok Ming is forced to give up his vocation to help his father-in-law run his rubber plantation business. The dramatic conflict between a reluctant Ngok Ming and his father-in-law develops as a battle between the virtues of education and the practical ideals of business.
