Aiman is a 28-year-old Malay correctional officer who is recently transferred to the territory’s top prison. He lives with his older sister Suhaila. Aiman begins to take an interest in a 65-year-old sergeant named Rahim, the long-serving chief executioner of the prison. When Rahim’s assistant suddenly quits, he asks Aiman to become his apprentice. Aiman tells Suhaila of his new job position, but Suhaila becomes upset, as their father was actually executed by Rahim. Aiman knew this all along. Can Aiman overcome his conscience and a haunted past to possibly take over as the next chief executioner? This was Singapore’s submission to the 2017 Best Foreign Language Oscar. The film is directed by Junfeng Boo, unrated, and 115 minutes.Return to previous page >>
