In an unnamed nation in an unspecified period of time, a new law which is intended give more peace to the people by strictly upholding morality only ends up justifying people to take matters into their own hands. New organizations who label themselves "the guardian of moral values" emerge and will easily attack somebody they consider immoral. Citizens of the country are divided into two groups: those that grow more violent and those who hope that the myth about the birth of a person who will lead the nation toward the light will soon come true. A police detective named Eros investigates the death of five men who were burnt alive by a mob of pedestrians after someone screamed 'thief!' at them at a bus station. While his superior orders him to lay off the "insoluble" case, Eros discovers there's a more sinister motive behind the killing than just a simple vigilantism.

At first i was expecting something 'out of the box' from Kala, when i previewed the website and especially from rumors i heard from people who went to the theater to witness the birth of the new Indonesian movie genre, a neo noir kinda movie. well.....This movie directed by Joko Anwar was actually went 'out of the world'. To be honest it wasn't totally awful, i like the art direction, i love the idea of the story, i really appreciate the gud of those people who brought this noir idea into silver screen, salute guys... but when it comes to plotting and story telling, oops.......sorry it wasn't good enough. The haunted ghost scenes with logical explanation attempt at the end, just doesn't work out man!. The grading quality is so poor also. Though i understand that technically it's quiet difficult to shoot the night scenes with wide angle (it's clearly seen the day light reflection on talents face as well as from the see-trough cloth wore by Fahrani). but if Joko Anwar paying more attention on details especially during the post production, i'm sure this movie would be even better. one more thing....the Kungfu lady was just too much...
