In Minangkabau, West Sumatera, Yuda a skilled practitioner of Silat Harimau is the final preparations to begin his “Merantau” a century’s old rites-of-passage to be carried out by the community’s young men that will see him leave the comforts of his idyllic farming village

After a series of setbacks leave Yuda homeless and uncertain about his new future, a chance encounter results in him defending the orphaned Astri from becoming the latest victim of a European human trafficking ring led by the wildly psychotic Ratger and right-hand man Luc.

With Ratger injured in the melee and seeking both his “merchandise” and bloody retribution, Yuda’s introduction to this bustling city is a baptism of fire as he is forced to go on the run with Astru and her younger brother Adit as all the pimps and gangsters that inhabit the night hound the streets charing their every step

With escape beyond their grasp, Yuda has no choice but to face his attacker in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale
