    • Synopsis
    • Ishak is a forensics diver, has a strange knack for successfully finding bodies trapped or lost underwater. To navigate his way through the watery darkness of his missions, Ishak relies on hallucinatory visions of the victims' final moments, reliving them often from the point of view as a participant in these situations, and sometimes as the victims themselves.

      At his ageing father's funeral, Ishak learns about the existence of his half-brother Ismail, and becomes quite obsessed about finding reestablishing contact with him. The appearance of a mysterious stranger causes Ishak's hallucinations to become increasingly vivid, and it becomes harder for him to tell what is real and what is not.

      Adapted from the 2014 award-winning short film "SALVAJ" by We Jun, which won Best Short Film at Festival Filem Malaysia Ke-27 in 2015 and Runner-up Prize at Sundance Channel Shorts in 2014.
