A Malaysian take on neo noir revolves around Saleh, an investigative reporter who has just been fired. After getting a flat tire over a dagger he finds attached to a skeleton hand. Saleh steals the dagger, which at times, without any apparent explanation, becomes incandescent. This is the first mystery he encounters, followed by a series of happenings in the old eerie town of Senduduk Rimbun. His curiosity is piqued when he discovers that male villagers vanish into thin air, every time there is a full moon. Solving the mystery of these disappearances could provide Saleh the perfect chance to win his job back. The mystery to unravel is much more entangled than he thinks!
