The former general Purna returns to his countryside manor to do political campaigning, and takes the young man Rakib under his wing. Critique against Purna gives the events a violent turn, and the film becomes a thriller. With an eye on Indonesia’s dark past of military dictatorship that is still connected to the current leadership, this intense first feature has been awarded at several film festivals.
