JermalDVD - 2010 | Indonesian
After his mother's death, 12-year-old Jaya is sent to his father, Johar, who works as a supervisor on a jermal: a fishing platform perched on log stilts in the middle of the sea. Johar is shocked, as he never knew he had a son, and rejects the boy as his kin. Faced with constant rejection from his father and relentless bullying by the other boys who work at the jermal, Jaya gives up hope of being accepted and focuses on the skills and attitude needed to survive.
