Bapak

PLAYED BY DATO’ RAHIM RAZALI

The father who makes each of his children believe that they are his favourite.

Bapak is the charming, gracious patriarch of a family made up of 5 very different children, each borne of a different mother. Bapak’s curiosity, self confidence and gall led him to live a full and eventful life. But now in his twilight years, will Bapak reveal any of the dark secrets behind his illustrious legacy and thus cast a shadow on the lives of his children who are themselves characters struggling to find their identities within their own stories?
