War veteran and student Iskandar finds himself disillusioned with civilian life after the Indonesian National Revolution. Feeling betrayed by the corruption and mismanaged leadership around him, Iskandar eventually finds himself on the run from the authorities in a city that is still under curfew.

MUBI's take

A full-blooded examination of a postcolonial Indonesia struggling to find its bearings, Usmar Ismail’s classic drama draws from his own past as a freedom fighter. Subsumed by an aching air of disillusionment, the moody cinematography hints at the muddled doubts that linger under a nascent democracy.
