Why you should see this film (in 10 words or less): Indonesian Spaghetti Western with an incredible soundtrack and amazing cinematography.
In the deserted hills of an Indonesian island, Marlina, a young widow, is attacked and robbed for her cattle. To defend herself, she kills several men of the gang. Seeking justice, she goes on a journey for empowerment and redemption. But the road is long, especially when the ghost of her headless victim begins to haunt her.
Indonesian director Mouly Surya pioneers a new genre — call it the Satay Western — with this female-driven journey of vengeance and justice.
