".....Lanang may be simple in plot but incredibly rich in emotions, able to connect to audience members on a fundamentally human level in its unnerving and often all-too-real reactions to grief." - Bakchormeeboy
Habsah has experienced both death and divorce in just a span of a few months. With no husband and no mother for emotional support, she becomes lonely and paranoid. Adi, her son is finding it increasingly difficult to communicate with his mother whilst at the same time trying to keep the family together.
Lanang is a story about relationships – a teenage boy and his divorced mother, a lonely daughter’s relationship with her mother and the matriarch who holds them together. All three of them need each other, but what happens if one of them is gone? Sometimes, it takes the death of a family member to realise that you do have a family.
