The brothers Am and Ad struggle to get by in the metropolis of Kuala Lumpur. As couriers of a baby-dealing gang, they bring the longed-for offspring to their rich new parents. The babies’ actual mothers are all prostitutes, whom the brothers also transport to the bordellos of Malaysia’s capital city. The pair are thus small cogs in an endless system of misery and violence. Am is OK with his role, but his younger brother Ad yearns for a life outside the underworld. As it turns out, the demi-monde won’t give him up without a fight. It is a matter of great good fortune that a film with such controversial subject matter managed to find its way into Malaysian cinemas.
