Based on the idea, “What if Bonnie and Clyde had kids?”, the story takes place in the wild midland of Malaysia, in the aftermath of a robbery during which an outlaw couple decide to abandon their kids, Maya and J, in a safe house and make a run for it. Unfamiliar with their surrounding world and eager to be reunited with their parents, Maya and J decide to live their lives on their own terms. As the story progresses, the kids begin to replicate the actions and wild behavior of their parents in an attempt to find a way to get close to them.

Locarno is ... my first film festival. I will always consider it to be my home. A place that gave me the confidence to continue voicing out my thoughts and visions.
