When a woman who was seeking protection is brutally killed by a vice syndicate, her boyfriend Amri immediately becomes a suspect, and is hunted by the police.
With his signature fast cuts, neo-noir vibe, and elaborate music set-pieces, director Yusof Haslam once again creates an unforgettable urban romance. A poignant performance by upcoming actress Nasha Aziz draws out our sympathy for the plight of abused social workers.
