Meanwhile, in the city, their daughter Orked, is being wooed by a young man, Yasin. Runtime: 90 minutes
2. Mukhsin – Twelve-year-old boy Mukhsin visits 10-year-old Orked’s village with his older brother and aunt to spend his school holidays. Mukhsin and Orked become sweethearts; their love story unfolds against the idyllic background of Malaysian village life. Runtime: 90 minutes
