Synopsis

For most Indigenous People, the land and forest is tied up with their identity. But what if your indigenous identity is not tied up to the land but rather to the sea? This documentary gives us a peek into the lesser known lives of the Indigenous Orang Seletar who have for generations called the Straits of Johor their home.

Bagi kebanyakkan Orang Asli, identiti mereka ada hubungkait yang kuat dengan tanah dan hutan. Tapi bagaimana pula dengan Orang Asli yang hidup di laut? Dokumentari ini menyelami kehidupan Orang Asli Seletar yang sudah turun temurun menganggap Selat Johor sebagai “rumah” mereka.
