Perang Sangkil (Akiya)
This story is loosely based on little known historical fact as well as word of mouth account on
slavery, rape and murder of the orang asli community during the late 19th century. The story
centres on Dirik, a father figure for his community of orang asli in Perak, who were constantly
attacked by a group called Rawa. The women were raped by these thugs while the men were
kidnapped and sold as slaves. In this story, Dirik goes against all odds to protect his people and
daughters from rape and slavery.
