Zaffan, 12, lives in a small rural community in Malaysia, and is the first to reach puberty among her group of friends. Hormonal changes cause her body to transform, something that leads to her being rejected by her schoolmates. Like a tiger that has been stalked and displaced from its habitat, Zaffan decides to reveal her true nature, her fury, her rage and her beauty. A wild coming of age story reminiscent of Julia Ducournau's filmmaking.
