    • Synopsis
    • Hui Ling’s life will truly begin as soon as she makes it to Taiwan. Or so she thinks. Right now, she is at the Thai-Malaysian border, working odd jobs and saving money. Determined to make it even when she loses all her savings, she accepts her boss’ offer for quick money as a human trafficker. As she descends into the darkness of her sordid trade, she witnesses the atrocities perpetrated against the Rohingya immigrants. Her beacon of light through this is Wei, a young hospital worker who believes that she is a woman from his past. AQÉRAT is a sweeping tale of displacement and morality in contemporary Malaysia
