When a group of merciless bandits arrive to pillage her home, the recently widowed Marlina must use her wit and will to enact justice upon her enemies. Humorous, bold, and unique—Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts is a revenge saga set in a sharp landscape of an eastern island in Indonesia.

“The first Satay Western, and a flamingly feminist one at that.” —Variety

“An austere yet stylish revenge romp as well as a starkly told tale of a determined and strong female character who is mad as hell and is not going to take it anymore.” —Hollywood Reporter
