The film is a thriller set in the months following Indonesia’s independence. It follows Iskandar, a medical student and war veteran, who finds himself disillusioned with civilian life in the post-war era and feels betrayed by the corruption and mismanaged leadership around him.

Watching this in commercial theater was quite an experience. Loving every second of it, and Laila the melancholic whore steals the thunder! J'adore her character. The fact that it's located in my hometown Bandung makes it even more overwhelming. I feel so much love from other countries for our movies by this restoration. I thank you, Mr. Scorsese :')
