Raped. Disemboweled. Nearly decapitated. Dumped on the outskirts of a nature reserve, dead - or so they thought. She needed a hero that night, so that's what she became. This is Alison's tale. A tale of monsters, miracles and hope.
Owing to a genetic mix-up involving stem cell research, the recently founded company Infinity Baby is able to offer a service for aspiring parents who never want to leave the baby bubble - infants that do not age.

A spellbinding, if laboured psychological drama featuring a scene-stealing performance from the late Ramli Hassan.
Prior to the release of NOTA on August 13th, I have little knowledge about this movie. It is not until I discovered a series of overwhelming responses that finally piqued my interest to check out the movie in the cinema. There were only four audiences (including me and my friend) for the NOTA showing -- a shockingly low attendance if you ask me. But after watching the movie, it's easy to see why. Despite familiar faces (Hans Isaac and Maya Karin) and a psychological thriller-drama element, NOTA is hardly the kind of movie that would easily attract the mainstream audiences. Still, that doesn't bother me at all because NOTA is a rare local gem worth checking out for, especially for those who often complain about the lack of quality movies in Malaysia.
