Selai Kayu Kek Poster

Sinopsis Filem
Aleh, seorang wanita muda Orang Asli, kurang mendapat sokongan kampungnya apabila tanah keluargnya dicereboh. Beliau menggunakan tanah tersebut untuk menanam ubi kayu dan Aleh risau akan hilang hak terhadap warisan itu. Bagi menceritakan kisahnya dan mendapatkan pertolongan pihak luar, Aleh mencari Rien, seorang YouTuber Orang Asli yang terkenal. Pada mulannya Rien tidak berminat kerana beliau merasakan Orang Asli patut meninggalkan kampung dan mencari kehidupan yang lebih baik di bandar. Namun lama kelamaan, Rien sedar bahawa beliau dan Aleh mempunyai cabaran hidup yang sama kerana identiti mereka sebagai Orang Asli. Oleh itu, mereka bergabung tenaga dan tekad untuk menyuarakan diri mereka.

Film Synopsis
Aleh, a young Orang Asli woman, struggles to find support from her village when her family's ancestral land is encroached. In fear of losing her land that she also uses to grow ubi kayu, she seeks out famous Orang Asli YouTuber Rien to expose and share her story. But Rien refuses at first as she believes that their community should pursue a better life in the city instead of farming on their land. Aleh and Rien eventually realise that they share similar struggles because of their identity. Together, they find their voice and speak out.
